I just picked up a beautiful 9mm Smith and Wesson Model 39-2.
As you can see, it is well preserved. The pictures are not real good as they reflect light shining on the gun. This gun is nearly flawless as it has been probably in a safe. I found it at a service station in Poolville, Texas. A man was showing it off and I asked if he would consider selling it. He said he needed some money for hospital bills and would take $500 for it. I cashed a check and paid him. What a deal.
It is a great shooter as I have taken it to the range a couple of times.
Here is some info that I found about this gun.
The Smith & Wesson Model 39 is a semi-automatic pistol developed for the United States Army service pistol trials of 1954. After the Army abandoned its search for a new pistol, the Model 39 went on the civilian market in 1955 and was the first of Smith & Wesson's first generation semi-automatic pistols. A modified version saw limited use with Naval Special Warfare units as the Mk 22 Mod 0.
