I've never heard of that variant before.

I can't offer any wisdom toward value, but I know for a fact that as soon as Smith went down the "Safety" road, it killed future sales of new pistols....except for those that don't know better. That hole in the side detracts value...in a big way. I've tried to like them, and can't.

I belong to a local regional forum that has a Smith collector always putting up stuff for sale. Holy crap, I don't know who his "hook up" was, but some of the stuff he posts for sale and just eye candy, is incredible....in beauty and rarity.
And holy shit, the sale prices...I can't afford none of it.

Eta,
He avoids anything with the "Ignition switch"...

I think the "bounty hunter" was a buds deal.
I'd personally rather have "Mr. Blasty" etched on the barrel.

You're not kidding about the ignition key killing the value.

These guys make a cool fix, it's practical, but not the same.
