This gun is perfect for someone who collects S&W revolvers – a nice-looking revolver that was only made for about 5 years with its factory box. if the collectors don’t pay enough attention, then someone is going to get a chance at a great-looking K-framed S&W double-action revolver chambered in 9mm Parabellum that will be great for home protection and can also be used for concealed carry.
