    NOT FOR SALE..........NOT FOR SALE..........NOT FOR SALE

    Up for consideration is a 2" S&W Model 63 .22LR stainless steel J-frame revolver. This gun is in great condition, both mechanically and aesthetically. I bought this piece NIB from the original owner that had bought it in 1991 and left it in his safe for the ~20 years before selling it to me. I've ran ~800-900 rounds through it with no non-ammo related issues. This is a very smooth and accurate piece...don't let the short barrel fool you, it'll put 6 shots into a 1" group at 50' if you do your part ;) A very fun plinker and a great way to train on your shooting technique without spending nearly as much for .38/.357 ammo.

    These guns are pretty scarce among the S&W circles. I'm not saying they're super rare, but you can't just go out and find one whenever you'd like to; and when you do, you'll usually pay for them! They started making these in the early 90's and quit making them sometime in the mid-late 90's. I'm not sure why these aren't seen more often on the used market...but my assumption is that guys who own them, don't want to let them go. Of course, this piece was made before S&W started using MIM parts and Internal locks; so this Model 63 has all forged steel internals and no lock. It was made before what many S&W guys see as the real downturn of the company.

    This gun would come with it's original box, papers, tools, & stocks. The Model 63 is NOT for sale, so please do NOT ask me for a cash price.

    Some photos:









    I'd trade for a clean 9mm Model 3906 with fixed sights...not a 4506, not a 5906, not a 6906 not a 3913, etc...no other models except for the 3906. I'd also trade for one of the Ashland Model 617's without the barrel lug or perhaps a 3.5" Model 27, either hard chromed or in nice shape (aesthetically and mechanically).

    I'll gladly answer any questions or post more photos for those interested in a trade. Please either post in the thread or shoot me a PM with any questions or comments. We can discuss the +/- of $ as appropriate.

    Thanks for looking,

    *The Model 63 is still available. I'd also trade for a pre-lock snub Model 627*
