The Nickel M&P

Click to enlargeBetween 1927 and 1930, a small number of Smith & Wesson M&P revolvers were purchased by the Texas State Prison system. These revolvers were chambered in .38 special, nickel plated and they had five inch barrels. They are marked "Texas State Prison", and are known to be between serial numbers 500000 and 630000.

This Smith & Wesson M&P revolver is serial 5446XX. I purchased it at a pawn shop for $125.
