NOTE: The above title of this description should indicate K38 Target Master piece as listed below in the first paragraph. This is how the gun is listed in S.P. Fjestad's Blue Book of Gun Values, 40th Anniversity Edition, page 1883.
Smith & Wesson Model 14-3, (K38 Target Masterpiece), .38 Special, double-action revolver, with a 6-inch barrel, original wood stocks, service trigger (0.265 inch wide) with grooved face, semi-target hammer (0.375 inch wide) with checkered spur, open adjustable rear sight, and a bright blue finish. The revolver has a three-screw configuration, with one screw (#3) under the stock. Based on its serial number, the year of manufacture is 1977. There is no box or other accessories with this revolver.
The overall condition of this gun is 99+ percent. I hesitate to call anything 100 percent if it is not new in the box. The finish on the metal and wood is all original, and is practically perfect, with one exception (see comments below on the bluing). Though I cannot guarantee this, the gun looks as though it has never been fired since its original purchase. The cylinder lock ring is very light, and the front of the cylinder shows no carbon stain, which is almost impossible to entirely remove once a revolver has been fired. See the photos of the cylinder ring and the front of the cylinder. The original wood grips have no marks or stains of any kind. The checkering is perfect. See the photos. The bluing is perfect with one exception -- on the bottom of the frame, i.e., the grip, there are some small scratches. There are no other blemishes, marrs, stains, etc. anywhere else the gun. Unfortunately, as mentioned above, there are no box, accessories, or owner’s manual.
The photos are high resolution, so zoom to see details. Please excuse the oil smears in the photos. Contact me for additional photos of any area you would like to see or see better.
The buyer pays USPS Priority mail ($25) and insurance, if insurance is desired. I will accept a personal check, but will hold the gun until it clears. I will also accept USPS money orders which I do not have to hold, as they clear immediately. I will accept other type money orders, but will hold gun until they clear. Check or money orders must be made out to Jerry Pownall.
USPS money orders are limited to $1,000, so two USPS money orders will be required for this purchase.
Cost of insurance is calculated at $4.60 for the first $300 of value, plus $1.20 for each additional $100 of value (rounded up). Insurance for the full value of this gun would require two USPS money orders, one for $1,000 and one for the balance of $150, calculated as follows:
First money order: $4.60 (for first $300) + $8.40 ($1.20 X 7) = $13.00.
Second money order: $2.40 ($1.20 x 2)
Total cost of insurance: $13.00 + $2.40 = 15.40
