|To some this is the ''Dirty Harry'' handgun and
certainly back when the movie came out Smith and
Wesson had a great surge in the gun's popularity.
It is interesting to note that many were sold but
hardly shot, as not everyone liked the recoil and
so many hit the used market in fine shape. It represents
yet another fine example of the Smith ''N'' frame
It had been hoped to find a ''dash 2'' which would
have had the old pinned and recessed characteristics
(a purist's interest) ........ but this ''dash 3''
however is so tight and in such good shape it made
temptation too much.
Another pic' below .......... is that a fine blue
or what?! .........
