    the previous owner sold his antique S&W collection to a friend,I purchased this gun from him,payed 700 for it , personaly I think the the price tag on this gun is correct , given the scarce original box and the condition it's in

    Another winner, my friend. Just beautiful. The boxes are starting to approach the value of the guns. You did very well.

    They are elegant, and blend a Victorian style with modern flair. Your collection continues to amaze me.
