Gentlemen,  I'm looking for a six inch barrel for a blue Smith & Wesson M & P in .38 Special.  Figured maybe one of you guys has one laying in a drawer, unloved and looking for a home and a job..........

Let me know what you have!

I might have one if my HE is the same as your MP. I plan on having Fords swap out the 6 inch for a 2 inch and nickle the revolver. Gotta love a snubby. The gun looks better than it photographed.

How wide is the front sight on yours?  Is it the real narrow early one or the wider one you see in the '30's?  (The later one's blade looks to measure about 3/32 wide.)

Looks to be the thinner blade between .070 where the blade meets the base to a hair less than .060 at the top.

Looks like a nice barrel, but I need the wider blade, since my eyes aren't what they used to be.

No problem, I hadn't even thought about the difference between the front sights so I'll need to compare the blades and open up the rear notch if my 2 inch bbls blade is bigger. I'd hate to get this back from Fords with a nice nickle plating only to find the sights were incorrect.

Definitely makes a difference.  If you've got the smaller notch and the wider sight it doesn't work at all.  If you have the wider sight, I'd consider having the notch cut to match the later square notch.   Makes sighting much easier!

Got the bbls swapped with no damage but lack about 20 degrees to true so in my photo I'm 1 thread shy. I'll let Fords do the final fit and refinish. Sent you a pm Niederlander.
