LSB#: 121113RJ01

Model: Model 61-3, the Pocket Escort

Serial Number: B43464

Year of Manufacture: 1973

Caliber: .22 Long Rifle

Action Type: Single Action Semi-Automatic Removable Magazine Fed Pistol

Markings: The left side of the slide is marked “SMITH & WESSON” and the left side of the frame has the four line “Marcas Registradas” address. The right side of the slide is marked “22 LONG RIFLE CTG” and the right side of the frame has an S&W logo. The bottom of the grip frame, on the right side of the magazine well, is marked “. MOD.61 -3” and “B43464”.

Barrel Length: 2 1/8”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is blade dovetailed into the slide. The rear sight is square notch with a flat top dovetailed into the slide.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are checkered plastic that are dark cream colored with imitation mother of pearl swirls in it. The left panel has a crack at the top rear pin and a chip and a crack at the bottom rear. The grips rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Nickel

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp and short (maybe 1 ¼”.) There is no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 95% of its metal finish. The top of the slide has been matted to reduce glare. There are no notable scratches but there are a lot of fine handling marks. The grip screw heads are sharp, but have obviously been turned. The markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. This pistol has a magazine disconnect safety. The barrel is in the frame, not the slide-similar to the S&W Model 422. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: A blue vinyl zippered gun rug with a plush red lining is provided. The soft case is marked “SMITH & WESSON” in silver. This style case was originally provided with the purchase of the pistol. The case is in Very Good condition with no rips or tears and has a functioning brass zipper. Also provided is one detachable magazine with a floor plate marked “S&W”. There are marks on the side of the magazine from being inserted into the pistol but is otherwise in good shape and rates in about Fine condition overall.

Our Assessment: The S&W Pocket Escort was only produced for three years (1970-1973) and this example is from the last year and has all the engineering improvements made to this pistol. With the barrel set low in the frame this pistol should be easier to control than its small size would indicate. Whether as a shooter or a collector this ought to be a fun gun to own.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This handgun is not on the California “roster of handguns certified for sale” and can only be transferred to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
