Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Smith & Wesson -- Model 48 LNIB

This auction is for a very minty Smith & Wesson Model 48-2 4" bbl in 22 Magnum and 22 LR. This is the nicest Model 48 I've ever seen and is LNIB. The condition I would rate as a strong 99% only because of some very light handling marks. The gun is unfired since leaving the factory in 1972 and comes with an extra factory fitted 22 LR cylinder. Most Model 48s I've seen are usually with the 6" barrel so I believe the 4" examples to be much scarcer. And scarcer yet examples with 2 cylinders. The revolver came in a Model 53 box which I have never seen before and the end label matches the gun. I spoke to Roy Jinks the former S&W historian and asked him about a Model 48 being shipped in a Model 53 box. He said it was very possible since that was the only box S&W had at the time with a provision (cutout) for an extra cylinder, but there is no way to verify this since S&W doesn't keep records of what type of box a firearm was shipped in. The extra 22 LR cylinder is numbered to the revolver under the extractor star just like the 22 Magnum cylinder. I couldn't bring myself to shoot this pristine revolver so I decided to sell it as I'm not much for safe queens. I downloaded several photos so you can see with confidence what you're bidding on.
