Very nice find!!So I walked into Sportsman’s WH looking for gun grease and looked on the wall and they had a dozen old revolvers. A few real beaters, but cool. A couple model 10’s and hiding behind them was this Model 66-2. It’s had a lot of use over the years and shows. I’ve never seen actual rust on a stainless gun before. It looked sad and in need of a home. The price was right for a project so I grabbed it. The inside was nasty, but cleaned up well and it functions great now. Lots of scratches and dings, I mean “patina”.
The box it came in was a distributor and dated July 2020. Salesman thought they were part of a big police trade in that had been sitting in a warehouse and just got sent out to the stores.
I was thinking about having it bead blasted and finding newer grips. Then I thought, she earned her scars. I’m going to leave her the way she is. View attachment 404221 View attachment 404222
