Found A Dashless Smith 686
So I bought it. It has A LOT of holster wear on the front site, a 7 digit inventory number stamped on the frame under the crane, doesn't look like it's ever been cleaned, but CARRIED A LOT.
The number on the crane side was professionally done, so due to lack of maintenance I'm thinking prison system.
Would have been manufactured between 1981, and 1985.
The crane is straight, no end shake, and the timing is good, but pull is atrocious.
It'll be a fun restoration.
