After a day of local pawn shop hunting, I found this beauty for a price too low to pass up. An S&W Model 681 .357 Magnum (fixed sight L-frame). It's in around 90-95% condition and dates back to late 1982. I bought her as a shooter...so that's what she's going to do :)

You're gonna love, mine's a tack driver.

This one I wish S&W would have continued to produce!
:D

Very nice, I am hoping one of my friends can locate a nice condition Model 66-2 or 66-4 for me. I used his for my CCW class and really liked it a lot.

NYPD, I'm beginning to worry that you have too many guns in your collection. Just send me a couple, including your Taurus 431, for safekeeping and it will make me feel better. A LOT better. :D

Cause that's the kinda guy I am.

That is a real beauty, congrats on the addition !

Nice pistola! :thumb: I had a S&W revolver in mind for a shooter a little over a month ago, when I was distracted by another S&W. M&P 15. It went home with me instead of the revolver. I gotta learn to stay focused. Maybe next time! :sad:

Very sharp, and looks like it's 'all business'. Can't wait to hear how it shoots!

I like the Two digit S & W's with a dash more than the three digit, but 1982 is still a good number, and I have a feeling you bought it right.

My greatest admiration for fine handguns is is found in the pre-model dates.

Should I score a Police Positive .38 S & W in 94% condition for $350? I've got a handle on one from a little old lady, and while it would be a good shooter, I know I won't want to buy ammo for it or set up to reload it. I know I probably should, but feel my
favorite lgs will give $400 for it.
