Description

This remarkable Smith & Wesson .22 M&P Revolver, with impressive cattle brand relief engraving and gold inlay, is a collector’s dream. Initially part of an exclusive batch of 150 units shipped to the U.S. Post Office in 1958, it stands out for its purpose as a training firearm for postal employees. It boasts a rich history, having been sold in 1967 for $83.20 and subsequently enhanced with ornate engravings costing $100, commissioned by its owner, Frank Barnard.

The artistry on this Smith & Wesson .22 M&P Revolver was completed in 1971 by Floyd E. Warren, whose signature adorns the grip frame, verifying his craftsmanship. The design draws inspiration from the iconic Texas cattle brand patterns that emerged in the 1940s and 1950s, encapsulating the essence of the Lone Star State’s ranching heritage. Every inch of the surface is intricately etched, displaying motifs of historic Texan cattle brands dating back to the 1880s and early 1900s, set against a stippled backdrop. Gold inlays enhance the muzzle, breech, and cylinder, with Warren’s initials delicately inscribed on the trigger guard.

This Smith & Wesson .22 M&P Revolver is further complemented by antique bone grips, polished to perfection, adding to its allure. While maintaining an impressive 99% of its original blue finish, this firearm exhibits signs of age and authenticity, including a cylinder drag line and minimal handling marks. The hammer and trigger continue showcasing their original case colors, contributing to their excellent mechanical condition.
