    Here is the model 66 I was talking about in the other thread. I finally talked him out of it and I am happy I did...even though I had to pay premium price for it ($650). He did throw in a box of "Super-X" .357mag rounds. I had never heard of them but he says they are some good and hot ammo. I assume. they are re-packings of the Winchester Super-X's. :)

    I have a model 586 that I love. Great shooting 357-but not near as nice as your model 66

    It would take a very quiet pair of sneakers and a heavy, blunt object. :)

    You could have a 686 + 7 shot if you really want. Why the prelock? just don't use the key or I could solder the hole for you for free.

    I like the older pre-locks, plus I like the firing pin on the hammer, and the fact that you cant get them new anymore (with the exception of the 442, and 642 no locks)

    You should show me all of your smiths sometime playboy

    That's just a really sweet gun - good buy! What kind of grips are you going to put on it?

    I have owned several hundred guns. My most accurate sidearm ever was a 4" M66. One hole 6-shot groups at 50-ft., more than once. Swapped to to my brother for a 6-inch M57 (a beauty). I miss the 66.:(

    Just may be the best all-around revolver ever made.:)
