Lou Horton S&W M24-3

Picked this up off another forum several days ago, it was just delivered Monday sellers FFL has a regular full time job and had a lot of FFL business to do at night.
I bought a 24-3 many, many years ago at a Shriners gun show, it was the first time I saw one, love at first sight. Man wanted $400 for it, which I thought was to high, he wouldn't come down but I bought it anyway.

Now M24-3's are bringing a good price, Lou Horton Distributed (1 of 5,000) 24-3's are bring really good money. The one I just bought was not cheap but doable for a LH. Some on GunBroker are approaching 2K. I was very happy to find and buy this one at the None collector price.

For those that don't know, so you don't have to look it up, it is chambered in .44special.

Congratulations Arland, I don’t know a lot about revolver prices but it sounds like a great deal.

Fine looking pistol. Out of curiosity, how many S&W revolvers do you have now?

I missed my chance to get that revolver.

BTW, I reload lots of .44 SPL ammunition. My wife's "bedroom revolver" is a nickel plated Charter Arms Bulldog.

How could you miss the Lou Horton, it was for sale for 7 days over on 1911Addicts forum. Snooze you lose!


I have 3 Charter Arms, one really old 44 Blue Bulldog, one four year old Stainless 44 Bulldog and a 4 year old Stainless .38spl Police Undercover model. Model is important cause it is a 6 shot, not five.
