Those who was reading Senior's post know we had a gun show Saturday, I actually expected a bumper crowd and extra high prices, I was surprised it was not as bad as I anticipated, maybe it was because it was mainly collectors and military buffs and the facility was large but there was bargains to be had but you had to know what to look for.
I picked up this stock for my 'United Postal Meter' M1 Carbine for $15. (The old one was messed up before I got it years ago)
Not a bad deal considering it still had the but plate and all attaching hardware.
I have always had a fondness for old revolvers and found this Victory model S&W 38 Special for $200 (after haggling over the price), the bluing is very worn but the action is good and not worn out. I may clean it up and re-blue it and use it as a shooter.
It had some stag handle grips which I will use on something else however the numbers all match on the rest of the gun. The Victory models are basically a pre-model 10, primarily in 38 special (some were made in 38 S&W) produced during WWII for security work, the military and many were loaned to the Allies and returned after the war, they are getting to be collectible.
