Yeah- never give up ANY original parts!

I've still got the original am/fm/cassette player for my '97 F150 packed away for the day I sell the truck.

Had the same for a 84 SWB Chevy -- Guy who bought it was impressed

Beautiful gun brother.

I have some "goodyears" on my 66-2, but they're just for shooting purposes. I have the originals.

Nothing wrong with that at all. I just can't figure out how they end up in the used gun cabinet without the originals. By the way, that is a great looking piece. Excuse me, I'm drooling on the keyboard.

Thank you, and I absolutely agree. Never once thought about getting rid of the original wood grips. I don't understand why anyone would.

Personally, I feel extremely lucky in finding this gun. I paid $450 for it. I went into the local gunsmith on Friday, and he had this one and its brother, the 19-2 (same bbl of 2.5") in the case. The 19 was I think $475. I might be mixing up the prices on the two. Anyway I asked him if he could hold the 19 for me for a few days, while I decided if I wanted to buy it. He said he'd hold it until Monday (I think? I'm not remember the facts too well... sorry). I decided over the weekend to buy it. Came in Monday afternoon, and he had sold it that very morning. I should have called him when he opened and told him I was gonna buy the 19. I was a little disappointed, because I really loved the blued steel, but I handled the 66 and fell in love with IT too. Decided against wasting anymore time, and bought it on the spot. 10 days later, picked it up (Cali). Never looked back since.

Absolutely love it and it has gotten me to love wheel guns so much more. Its my first one, and I know there will be plenty to come.

That's disappointing that the 19 was gone. I am a blued steel guy myself. But hey, you got a good price on a fantastic firearm.

Just got this last week. Model 10-4

I like blued steel too. I'm sure I'll own more than a few before I'm done. And I'm perfectly happy with mine.

That's a beautiful gun. Congrats.

IMHO Smiths look best in blue steel. Ruger Vaqueros are another animal, however. Must be from years of old time TV this writer watched in his youth.

As a matter of fact, the model number is on the frame, under the crane, not the barrel.
