I picked up one of these in good condition tonight from the local "toy store". Serial # C111XXX. According to the info I found at https://www.facebook.com/SmithWessonMpRevolverModel10/posts/471257209590018 , it was made 1948-1952. It came with a black flap holster that looks about the same age.

Looks like I'll have to get to a real computer to fix the link instead of doing it from my phone

A Mug can never have enough revolvers.  You know me, I carry a six pack to the line with me on every capper.

Does that mean 1 or 6 revolvers?

He really means 6 revolvers. I only shot Zoot once-a few years ago at Pitspitr's farm. So I'm no expert, but IIRC, you don't have to reload, you can just stage revolvers(and rifles) all over the place. I shot with a pair of 32-20s, one a S&W similar to yours, and a Marlin 1889, and my trusty Lebel rifle and a Peacemaker clone.

Oh, I think he's understating. I think he really carries more than six revolvers. You should see where all he puts them.  Roll Eyes Shocked. He has one at just about every prop.  Grin. But there's something wrong with his revolvers. The cylinder latch works backward. You have to pull back on them instead of pushing forward.  Wink

Well, if it makes you feel any better I do have one of those backwards opening M&P's.  Lonnie has all my Detective Specials right now so I'm going to have to drag out a mix of 4" guns for our first AZSA match of the season in April (weather permitting.)  Hope my thumb remembers how to work that way Wink
