UMF-0001 1950's US Military demilled Smith and Wesson M13 Revolver

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #17674

This is a Smith and Wesson Model 13 revolver that was manufactured for the US Air Force between 1953 and 1986. The early pistols used an aluminum cylinder as well as frame. There were to be issued to US Air Force flight crew members, called the Revolver, Lightweight, Caliber .38 Special, M13. After persistent reports on cylinder and frame failure with the M13, the Air Force attempted to remedy the issue by issuing a dedicated low-pressure .38 cartridge for the weapons - the Caliber .38, Ball, M41 round. However, after continued negative reports, Air Force officials decided that the revolvers were not suitable for issue, and the model was withdrawn from service, all but a few examples being crushed or destroyed. As you can see from the pictures these are very demilled and are mainly being sold as novelties or paperweights. Orignal Smith and Wesson markings still present on the right side of the frame. TYPICAL EXAMPLE SHOWN!
