Model 56 Up For Bids

Smith & Wesson Model 56 USAF revolver. This item is an extreme rarity in a military marked S&W. Most were destroyed by the government in Georgia and only 4 were archived at the Springfield armory museum. Three screw K frame target revolver. Two inch barrel with a 6 shot fluted cylinder and walnut grips. Smooth back strap that marked is U.S.

Started at $7,300.00

Yep. Seventy-three hundred.

I have a Model 36 that is 90% just like the one in the photo(sights are different). Ya think I could get 3k for it? ;)

Hmm. None of the pictures actually show the US marking on the smooth backstrap.
On CSP, the Garand guys seem fanatical about identifying fakes; step one in identifying a fake is... taking a look at it.
