serial #BFH9718, Special Edition #210, 22 LR, 6" full lug barrel with an excellent bore. In 1990 Smith & Wesson partnered with Ellett Brothers of Chapin South Carolina to offer by subscription "The Twelve", a set of revolvers based on early company advertising with each month's edition numbered one through five hundred. This gun was the June Edition with the number "210 of 500" on the sideplate. The metal surfaces retain 99% original nickel plate with a light turn ring on the cylinder. The .500" target hammer and smooth combat trigger retain robust case-hardened colors. The checkered walnut factory target grips with silver S&W medallions rate excellent. The revolver features a Patridge front sight with red insert and black blade micro adjustable rear sight. The sideplate has an acid etching of a cowboy shooting his revolver with his faithful steed "down" in the background and "THE REVOLVER" etched on the right side of the barrel. The gun includes the original two-piece factory box that is correctly end labeled but not correctly numbered to the gun. The serial number on the box is wrong with the last digit on the box a "3" instead of an "8" but all other information is correct including the product code. Also included are a factory manual and paperwork. It is purported that S&W never finished the full series of revolvers (Standard Catalogue of Smith & Wesson by Supica and Nahas). This fine gun appears as new in the box and will make a fine addition to your own collection of "The Twelve". (88873-329) {MODERN} (800/1200) SOLD FOR $690.00
