Once again, after swearing that I had purchased my very last firearm forevermore, I ran across something that almost rated as a grail-gun; an old stainless steel S&W J-Frame Model 60 .38 Special (the stainless version of the Model 36).
It was tough to do but I had myself pretty much talked out of buying it before I got to the LGS.
At first glance, this older revolver looked to be in decent enough shape. A quick hands-on inspection revealed that the cylinder would bang into the barrel shank on closing. Furthermore, there was a timing issue; the cylinder consistently failed to carry up on the same two chambers.
The asking price would have been good for a mechanically sound Model 60, but this one needed some work. I took a pass.
