S&W VICTORY MODEL WB INSPECTED
Item ID #1694
Bore in the 5" barrel is bright and shiny. No issues. It will rate a nine on a one to ten scale. The finish looks better in person. Brown on the finish shows up a lot in the pictures and does not look the same when held in your hand. It is there, but not nearly as pronounced as shown.
The Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Grips, barrel and frame numbers match. Grips fit perfectly and are in very good condition with proper fit. The other numbers are mixed. Interesting piece. It is British proofed with the correct markings on the barrel and frame. Each cylinder is proofed. On the butt, along with the serial number you will find the British broad arrow, P proof mark, and WB. Top strap is not marked U.S. Property. I have had this Victory Model in my collection for a long time. My plans are to periodically add more of these to my website. For those of you who like military double action pistols, this one will make a nice addition to your collection.
