    Last auction I picked up a 1976 vintage 336 and a 1979 vintage 39A. I like the slimmer for end on both those rifles and the non tapered barrel on the 39A.

    This auction has a 336RC from 1967 and a 39A Mountie from 1960. Why oh why did I have to go look. The straight stocks are killing me. Both these rifles are just as beautiful as the 2 I purchased. The Mountie is stunning and the lever is as smooth as I've ever cycled. I have the straight stock on my 1894C.

    Straight stock .30.30, .357 Magnum and .22LR are calling me to live next to each other. 336RC, 1894C, 39A Mountie, I don't have the disposable income for this hobby.

    There are 2 Model 57Ms. Neither is calling out to me, I have my Model 56 and love it, I thought the 57M would instill the same feeling, but nope.

    There is also a beautiful S&W 19-4 4" barrel with TH, TT, TS that looks like it has never been fired.

    Unfortunately I can't take pictures in the viewing room.

    My first firearm was a S&W Model 19-3 with a 6" barrel...circa 1968...TH>Target Hammer / TT>Target Trigger / WO>White Outline / RR>Red Ramp

    Still pissed that I sold it...and I'm always looking to replace it.

    I didn't know it when I bought my 686-1 for $450, I grin when I see you cant touch one for under $700

    I think I'm going after the 39A Mountie. I have a FedEx LTL pickup today at the office, after that is gone, I'm going to go look again.

    For the revolver, I really want a Model 66, the 19 is the same just blue vs stainless on the 66.

    I updated my original auction thread, I put a bid on the Mountie and 2 other Glenfield 60s.
