If I was ever going to buy something like that, I would either require official verification first or restrict myself to reputable auctions.

Yes but only if he knows the serial number, that way we can verify it.

He used a 5" S&W M&P revolver or what we call the Model 10 today. http://world.guns.ru/handguns/sw-mp_5in.jpg

I can neither confirm, nor, deny the authenticity of the revolver.

Yup, without some kind of proof it's worth whatever an old beat up .38 with no firing pin is worth.

If it don't have a firing pin, it's not mine. I could not fire blanks with out it.

I saw Don Knotts on a talk show a few years back. He said that over the years of his travels, a lot of LEO's, from Feds to security guards would give him a bullet from their loops. He also said that he had kept every one that had ever been given to him.

That seller is either completely bogus or he has some awesome stuff. Al Pacino's hat from The Godfather. Even better, Arnold's shotgun from T2 that still fires the butane pops out of it! That would be so damn cool to have!!!!

[b] The man says it's authentic !! [/b] Subj: RE: Question for seller -- Item #2204823201 Date: 12/10/03 8:29:58 AM Pacific Standard Time From: info@profilesinhistory.com Hi Realist - This piece will come with a letter of authenticity from the consignor, who originally acquired it from Ellis Prop Supply Co. of Hollywood. The president of Ellis confirmed to him that this was in fact the gun used by Knotts as Barney Fife. It's a real Colt .38 Special police revolver, and only the barrel is plugged at the aft end, which was most likely done after the show was completed. I hope this answers your questions. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to drop me another email.

Do you have a certification of authenticity that this was Barneys weapon and used on the set of Mayberry RFD? I am greatly interested.. Sincerly,
