Sent a little time over the holidays giving a buddies 66 a little facelift. I'm not so sure that it didn't spend some of its life in a duty holster considering the dings etc. It had a wide hammer and trigger but we put them on a diet and polished them up. Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics but its all I got.

The polished accents make the gun. Looks great!

That's really nice like the cylinder ring treatment.

Very nice SSBob... The polished accents really set it off.

Makes me want to drag out my old Model 19 for a few rounds at the range!

Too blingy, no way! It goes great with the trigger. Even without the bling trigger I think it would fit the piece and I am not one for shiny stuff.

I like it a LOT Bob. Very, Very, cool.
I'd probably copy it, if given half a chance. Seriously.

The next Smith on my list (has been for some time) is a K frame 66 or 19. For me, these are the greatest combat pistols ever made. I might have come to a different conclusion had the Python's I have come across were tuned better than the factory examples I have owned. Thanks for posting and TEASING me .....LOL!
