A confirming factory letter accompanies this one-of-a-kind Pre Model 27 detailing its original shipment on April 14, 1953 to the Em Roe Sporting Goods Company in Indianapolis, Indiana where it was purchased by and inscribed for USMC Captain Melvin J Thompson. A host of fascinating documents are included with this outstanding .357 Magnum covering Captain Thompson’s service record including a harrowing account of a standoff at Pearl Harbor against a Japanese Fighter Pilot armed only with his Government Model!

A truly special and investment grade Pre Model 27 is equipped with the most sought after barrel length and comes in the equally mint gold picture box with the vapor paper as well as the Helpful Hints brochure. The gun is equipped with a 3 1/2” barrel, original bright blue finish and the numbers matching checkered walnut diamond magna grips and is virtually AS-NEW! Positively one of the coolest .357 Magnums we have ever offered for sale, this rare 5-Screw is sure to be a centerpiece investment in any high-grade collection!

Buyer pays $40 for fully insured shipping.
