    Richard Simmons - Thought You'd Be Interested!

    AIM has some S&W .38 Sp model 64s for $400. I know you like S&Ws so thought you would be interested. Had I not just bought a new revolver I would be thinking about this.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    So, what did you think of them? They sold out of the 64-5s and 64-6s for a while and appear to have a new bunch available. I have been considering ordering one but the price seems a bit high, especially when shipping and transfer fees are added to the price. Am I right about that?

    What I’m seeing at AIM right now are 64-3 and 64-6. I prefer the 64-3 as it has the hammer mounted firing pin and doesn’t have the MIM hammer and trigger of the -6. I also like the shape of the cylinder latch thumb piece. The 64-3 example that show is of post 1981 manufacture since they dropped the pinned barrel in 1982.

    The price isn’t bad as just about any functioning S&W revolver will bring $400. I prefer my standard barrel M64 as I like the way the 4” balances with the lighter barrel but that’s just me.

    I just looked and they had 64-5s available. I just put in the order. I can't wait!

    I didn’t see those. I was looking under the “what’s new” section. Should be a very serviceable revolver. Out of curiosity what made you choose the 64–5?

    Similar characteristics to the 64-3 but about 20 years newer, if I remember what I read. As these are law enforcement trade-ins I figured they would have been shot less. That was the big reason. The 64-6 seemed to be much different in terms of manufacturing processes and features (the removal of the hammer mounted firing pin being a great example) so I didn't want to go that direction. That was my thought process anyway.

    Makes sense. I believe you’ll enjoy it. Let us know what you think when it arrives. If you post pics of markings I might be able to tell you what agency issued it.

    Thanks, I will take you up on that. I am going to call AIM on Tuesday when they open to make sure they get my FFLs information and to ask if they can make sure I get a gun with wooden grips. The pictures show wood for the 64-5 but the description says that some have Pachmayr grips. For this I would rather have the S&W wood grips.

    Picked it up yesterday. It looks like it has been handled a lot, but not fired. The revolver has also been polished making it look almost like it was nickel plated. As soon as the Gallery comes back up or I find another photo hosting site I will get some pictures posted of it.
