    What condition do you rate this gun?

    Is it marked for military use, like USN. Is it original finish and grips?

    Thank You.

    The condition is very good and shootable. The internal parts are in excellent shape and
    I installed a new hand to it. Lock up is tight. The finish is gray black parkerized but it looks too good to
    be original. In my opinion I think it has been refinished. Hole in bootom of frame for
    lanyard loop. No military markings I have read that this was common in some Victory
    Models. Frame, cylinder and barrel all have matching serial number

    It it was military issue, the grips are not likely original -- the issued Victory model S&W revolvers had plain wood grips w/ no checkering or emblems in keeping with the military spec. The only exception to this were guns made pre-1942.

    Here are a couple informative pages re the Victory model S&W:

    The S&W Victory models have the old S&W "long trigger" are great shooters -- IMHO most are every bit as smooth as modern "Performance Center" guns. Good luck with your sale!

    This is a lot nicer in person. I was the prior owner and I traded this to ron last year. The gun shop I purchased it from told me the parkerized finish was original but it is unknown. It was not military issued and the grips should be original as well. Oh and it was born in 1944. Good luck with the sale ron.

    I'll take it. After the last drop is it still 375?
