Swedish Mausers for 30 bucks, Sporterized Springfields 03s for forty bucks, Wow!They were altered mostly to make them easier to sell as the .38 Special was a more popular cartridge by that time. The fact that is sometimes split the brass was of no concern. Mail order outfit's like Klein's of Chicago sold them by mail Indeed it was a former British service revolver so re chambered with the barrel shortened that was used by Lee Harvey Oswald to shoot Dallas police officer J.D. Tippet. Note the lack of the front lug supporting the ejector rod typical of a Smith & Wesson revolver indicating the crudely chopped barrel.
Did you miss the Webley shaved to shoot .45 ACP for 14.95? or the irony of an Enfield No. 2 revolver for the same money as an Rohm 22?Swedish Mausers for 30 bucks, Sporterized Springfields 03s for forty bucks, Wow!
Yep back when you could get a Hershey bar for a nickel.Did you miss the Webley shaved to shoot .45 ACP for 14.95? or the irony of an Enfield No. 2 revolver for the same money as an Rohm 22?
That is on my watchlist and never saw a bargain on US Navy marked Victory.]
Don't look at the prices for US NAVY marked Victory Models. As a former US Navy Aircrewman myself, I always thought I should have one. I haven't seen a half-decent one under a grand in over a decade.
That is actually a pretty standard dealer wholesale offer for the Victory in 38-200. They buy low, and hopefully sell higher to keep the lights on.I went out today with a friend while he purchased a gun and did a little fishing. I asked a dealer what would he pay for a victory 38 Smith & Wesson all original, he told me 280 bucks. I just laughed.
