The S&W Revolvers, A Shop Manual - Thank you!

Recommended Posts

Search was no help, but someone posted mention of "The S&W Revolvers, A Shop Manual" along with a photo if I remember correctly. Whoever you are, I want to thank you! That manual has a wealth of information, including historical info that I found enlightening.

 

Once again, thanks! :)

Kuhnhausen's books have saved me from messing up many times.

Yup, it was probably me.

 

Here are four books no self respecting Smith and Wesson aficionado should be without.

 

There's a newer addition of this one out now, but I like this one better.

The 4th edition of this one is out now, but I haven't gotten it yet.

All members of the library. Didn't know there was a 4th edition of the Standard Catalog. Jim Supica was kind enough to sign my copy of the third, thanking me for some ridiculously small contribution I made when I hung out on the S&W Forum a lot.

 

There's also the history by McHenry and Roper.

I got the 5th edition through Amazon from a bookstore in Texas.

 

In a way I am just now (re)discovering S&W revolvers. As soon as I turned 21 I bought an RG .38 and then realized what a POS I had purchased, so I went out and bought a new Model 10. It seemed rather plain at the time, but when I think back it was quite a beautiful little revolver! A little later I sold the Model 10 and bought a Model 19, but then I sold it and bought a Colt Commander and 1911's were all I would buy for the next 30 years. However, once I discovered CAS, my interest in revolvers was rekindled and I now have a Model 10 and a Model 64 and I love them. I bought the above manual with no expectation of ever working on them, but instead just to learn more about them and this book has proven to be quite valuable in that effort.

 

Thanks again for bringing this to my attention!

I have the 2nd and 4th edition of the Standard Catalog of S&W. I plan to buy the latest S&W revolver book by Jerry Kuhnhausen soon.
