Victory Snubbie


.38 caliber serial number V668586 with a two inch barrel.
100% rearsenal parkerized finish with original grips.
Auctioned off for $230 at Cowan's.

A two inch Victory is very scarce, and commands a premium three times over the cost of a four inch Victory. Thus, this revolver should have sold for $1400-1500. Why did it not? Because it is a fake. The hammer is a Model 10 hammer. The frame lacks the hammer pivot pin being exposed underneath the cylinder latch. Thus, it is a later frame and it should not have a V prefix serial number. Therefore, the serial number has been altered. Bad juju.

Click the pic to compare this fake to a real Victory Model, and be careful. Know what you are buying.

Classy looking gat, even if it is a fake. Who would have carried a real one during the war? An undercover type spy? MP detective?

Not to mention the MIM cylinder stop either.
