Smith and Wesson .38 Caliber Snub-Nosed Revolver Relic

This is a special version of the Smith and Wesson Model 12 revolver, manufactured specifically for issue to U.S. Air Force Air Crews. It was manufactured with an aluminum frame and cylinder, and was soon considered to be unacceptable. The entire stock of these guns was ordered destroyed. This one has been subjected to a welding torch, and is welded solid, with no functioning parts. The grips remain intact, and the marks are legible, serial number:0278079. Dimensions: 8 inches long overall. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

Condition:

Relic, welded and cut, and rusted, does not function. The grips are very good. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
