Not every revolver is a beauty queen. I hear tell that the former owner of this S&W 1937 Brazilian Contract .45 ACP might have picked her up in the desert outside of New Vegas after a dustup with some Raiders...





"Aging" the plastic faux ivory grips is a work in progress. Had to do something to match the metal; it's irrecoverably pitted. I could bead blast and Parkerize it, but I don't see the point. It still shoots well but requires some Kentucky windage, as one might expect.

I heard somewhere they made 300 of these 610-2 with a 3" barrel for Lew Horton. This has been worked a bit. Mainly it has a 4" tube now and a few other seen and unseen touches. It is a shooter though. A 610, an extra 2 or 4 moon clips loaded up and I would never feel under gunned.

Hot damn. I’ve been close to pulling the trigger on some 3” Lew .44’s but that 10 mil is siiiick

I still have the 3" tube that came off of it in case I want to put it back on. It has the 4" for competition which I no longer do. It is not a bad pin gun but takes to long to get back on target so I use a S&W 25-5 that was worked over by Austin Behlert, an old time East Coast gunsmith.
