Very nice! I probably would've bought one had it been available. Thanks for posting the photo, Eric!

Let's see if the new owners come out with it. I would love one myself!   ;)

Wow. Gorgeous. Nice design!

I love that gun... Unfortunately I think that the other side says Ladysmith.
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

The 3913 NL has  both the gray & the black grips, the 3913 LS is the LadySmith, and the 3913 has the black grips? I hesitated looking for one because I thought that the LS only came with gray grips. You have a beautiful gun...very elegant lines to it. Enjoy.

I do own one, but those are just pictures off the internet.  I thought maybe I would dig out the PP for a group shot.  I think that the 3913 is larger than the Rohrbaugh prototype.

Yes, it is larger than the Rohrbaugh R9 "PP". . . . . That was to be it's designation.  ;)

Those are classic lines IMHO

The Rohrbaugh is more refined looking. Elegant. Pure.

Norm  -  I remember when the Lady Smith 3913 came out and everybody wanted one without the "Ladysmith" inscription.  That is what prompted Smith to bring out the "NL".

Josh, I hate to say this to you, "but I think Sigs are ugly".

Lol. No biggie. The Sig is more of a utilitarian piece I guess, but I like the look personally.

The sig 239 has a similar overall shape to the smith you posted. That's why I put it up.

Not really designed to be a beauty queen.

Anyway, they both lose the beauty contest next to the Rohrbaugh. It's quite elegant. Not cluttered up with a bunch of plastic and lines that go nowhere.

Quite a nice design Eric.

I don't think that Sigs are ugly, just a bit cosmetically challenged.

You guys got my interest up.  Here is a PP and a 3913 and a R9.

Judging from the pictures, the R9 PP and the 3913 are pretty close to the same size.
