SMITH & WESSON 9mm MODEL 39-2 SERIAL #22****
The Model 39-2 with A ser# began production in 1971 so this is an early 1970's gun maybe 1971.
The Smith & Wesson model 39-2 9m/m semi-auto was
introduced in 1954, in the traditional double-action configuration.
It had an alloy (anodized) frame, and a carbon steel slide, 8-shot
magazine, and a 4" barrel. Since the prototype model 39-1 NEVER
existed, the sequence went from the original model 39 directly to
the model 39-2. It featured checkered walnut grips, a serrated
1/8" front ramp sight; with a micrometer click adjustable rear
sight for windage-only. The hammer spur usually has a small
hole drilled in it, with a smooth fore strap and a stippled back
strap. S&W is stamped on the frames right side, 9mm CTG on
the extractor port; with later production models (after A160000)
simply marked 9mm. Weighing just 27 ozs unloaded, an
with a smooth trigger and magazine safety -
its my favorite of the 9m/m class. The last S&W model 39-2
(S/N A747148) was shipped on February 15, 1983; as regular
production ended it 1982.
Approximate value runs from a low of $175 (fair condition), to
a high of 'bout $400 for "As New In Box" condition. The Illinois
State Police were the first agency to adopt the S&W model
39-2, as a standard, issued sidearm for their department. Some special models of the gun can be worth thousands.
The alloy frame 39-2 was made 1970-1982
Gun has only been fired a handful of times and is in beautiful condition.
