1917 Smith & Wesson .45 ACP for sale

I’m selling my ’37 Brazilian Contract Smith & Wesson; the gun isn’t in bad shape or anything, I just don’t shoot it that much and could likely use the money to add to the “Buy me more Berettas” fund.

This is the blaster itself, as you can see it’s in pretty good condition, with a minor roll mark around the cylinder.  It was re-blued before I got it, and is missing the lanyard ring that originally came with these guns, so as a collector its value isn’t as high as it could be.

However, it’s a gorgeous gun, and an excellent shooter, with the super-crisp single action trigger pull this revolver will shoot better than most folks can hold.

Shipping is free, click this link to view and bid on the auction on Gunbroker.  I’m also throwing in a bag full of moon clips, half moon clips, and 1/3 moon clips – that way you can go the range and say “clips” and be right about it.


  1. All I can say is: Damn You!


    I exhausted my BAG fund for the year.

    Would you trade an Argentinian BHP clone? Don’t answer that, it’s a rhetorical question since I won’t give it up.

  2. Hmmm.

    It *is* C&R eligible, so I can receive it even here in the Volksrepublik…

    I may have to consult the gun fund for this one, Caleb. Damn you!

  3. I’d make an offer for it, but I’m sure the crazies on GB are gonna run that auction up into stupidville. Not that you’ll mind that outcome, of course.

    And with GB’s rules, you can’t pull it from the auction to keep the sale en-blog, as it were. Once you got that first bid, you were committed.

    Still, I’ll watch the bids to the last day, just to see how far above book they bid it up. Enjoy the proceeds; may they go to something equally as boomworthy!

  4. That is the idea – if it sells well, it will not only cover my 1951E, but a new home defense shotgun as well.
