Hi LarDaBear,

I don't have quick access to any of mine to measure, sorry. It looks like you are on the right track though, they are different than the Model 69 hood and they are shorter than the...

3Dub is correct.

The box with the overlayed label likely contained a 69A version of the 6902 (made between 1938-1941). The pre-war 69A 6902 was equipped with the 75C front sight and 32B rear...

There will likely be an import stamp from the US importer. Check the underside of the barrel in front of the forearm and other areas on the barrel for additional stamps.

Larry is correct, the trigger and sear for the Model 69 (not 69A) is identical to the Model 56 and 57. There is very little that can be done to adjust or tune the trigger aside from a light stoning...

Wundudnee,

I was there all Saturday, sorry I missed you! I also brought home a WWII S&W Victory revolver just for fun.

They are simple, tough rifles. Odds are good it will go "bang". The grooved receiver places it post-mid 1954. The later trigger guards were chromed so that is maybe why it is white? The Model 69...

If it has already had an overcoat of finish applied you cannot hurt the collector value so refinishing it can only be an improvement.

All Model 75 receivers post mid-1954 were grooved for "tip-off" style scope rings.

If someone told you there were no grooved Model 75 receivers they were mistaken.

I agree, that is beautiful to my eyes!

Yes, the "ST" on the barrel means stainless. The "217" on the barrel is the bore diameter. I can't see the "27" you mentioned in the photos, it should be...

The 2C elevator was also used on the models 47, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63, 69, 72, 74, the late Model 1890 and 1906 and probably a few others that used the 32B and 32C rear sights.

Excellent question! I don't collect the Model 67 (much) but I bet PastorRob has an answer.

I don't recall seeing any barrel dates on mine but you are correct in 59s and 60s had them.
