it also will not ricochet., as it "splatters" when it hits a really solid surface.The Smith & Wesson company was formed in 1852, in Norwich, Connecticut.Winchester introduced the .357 Magnum, which was dimensionally identical to the .38 Special except for a .125 inch longer case, and the first revolvers (referred to as ".357 Magnum Models") were completed by S&W on April 8, 1935. Jordan's idea for a "peace officer's dream" sidearm was a heavy-barreled four-inch K-Frame .357 Magnum with a shrouded barrel like the big N-frame .357 and adjustable sights.After a year of experimentation with improved-strength steels and special heat-treating processes, the result was the .357 Combat Magnum (later designated Model 19), with the first serial-number gun (K260,000) presented to Jordan on November 15, 1955.The Model 19 was produced in blued carbon steel or nickel-plated steel with wood or rubber combat grips, an adjustable rear sight, full-target or semi-target hammer, serrated wide target trigger or combat-type trigger, and was available in 2.5" (3": Model 66—rare), 4", or 6-inch barrel lengths.The weights are 30.5 ounces, 36 ounces, and 39 ounces, respectively.Smith & Wesson played a major part in the development and success of the cartridge and revolver that went with it.Firearms writer and experimenter Philip Sharpe is credited for its development during the 1930s when police agencies were asking for a more powerful round.
This identification proves that the handgun is an authentic Smith & Wesson pistol.
the NICE MAN @S&W factory took about 10 SECONDS to find that out!
he said that they have no record of selling the revolver to the LACPWO. It has incribed inside the cradle "City of Joliet". rustybore, assuming the bore is NOT rusty (lol), the answer is decidedly: YES.
does anyone know the year of manufacture of the revolver???
