I got this one last year and because it has never been fired its still new right?

The Smith & Wesson Model 66-1 Arizona Highway Patrol.

I had to starve and save my lunch money for this one. ....jpg  66-1c.jpg  66-1f.jpg  66-1h.jpg

I'd have to go check the official definitions, but I think that if you are not the original purchaser it is not classified "New" but is instead classified "As New".  That aside, great find.  don't know if the AHP commemorative adds much in value but even without that a pristine Mdl 66 is a superb handgun, one of the best fighting revolvers out there IMO.

I was issued one of these as an upgrade to the Model 15's we carried.   I hated it because it was shiny.  I hate shiny.  I don't like shiny things so now I always wear a hat.

I still have two S&W revolvers, a Model 10 heavy barrel round butt and a Model 36.   They will go to my Son-in-law when I leave this rock and he knows they are to go to my Grandson when he leaves.   Isn't it wonderful to know that some of our guns are that well made?

Fantastic looking grips on that!   I do have to go along with the preference for blued revolvers though.  I only own 2 stainless guns and they're both 3" round butt Smiths,  a model 65, and a model 686 CS-1 made for the Customs service.  They're both shooters.    Too bad that one's mostly a "safe queen", as those M-19s and 66s were great carry guns and good shooters.    I had a Pa. State Police commemorative model 19 (deep polished blue)  with very similar looking beautiful smooth grips, in the wooden box, but finally traded it, because it was strictly a safe queen, and I didn't shoot it.  
Great looking revolver, but especially those grips!
