Stumbled across a nice, numbers matching, 1943 US Navy S&W Victory and I just couldn't help myself.

After the US Property marked S&W Victory in .38 S&W I should have stopped looking.....

But I didn't and came across this U.S. Navy one in .38 SPL that comes with a nice "correct" holster.

It will be at my FFL next week .... SMH

Here is a link to an interesting article on them from the AMERICAN RIFLEMAN magazine: An Official Journal Of The NRA | "V" Is For Victory: The Smith & Wesson Victory Model Revolver

Nice find OP. Love the history of the old revolvers used to secure the companies who supported the war effort.

Interestingly during WWII Hershey's not only produced "D-Ration" bars for the Military, they also produced anti-aircraft gun parts.

And Willy Wonka was created by some British dude in 1964. Lol
