Here's one that's interesting. Ed McGivern Limited Edition Heritage Series manufactured by Smith & Wesson. It is new in box, and unfired.

The Smith & Wesson model 15–9, manufactured in 2002 was a Limited run Lew Horton Heritage Series McGivern Models from the S&W Performance Center. 3 Models commemorating Ed McGivern's world speed records in 1934 with a revolver. All models have a Patridge front sight with Gold Bead, round butt frame with Altamount Fancy checkered service grips of that era, 6” barrel, Ed McGivern commemorative plate mounted on right side of frame, Heritage Series box.

Lew Horton commissioned the Performance Center to do a tribute to Ed McGivern. The Heritage Series Model 15 came into being. These were offered in Blue, Nickel and Color Case Hardened. 150 of each were produced.
These revolvers commemorate Ed McGivern's World speed records in 1934. A commemorative plaque details McGivern's records of 5 shots in 2/5 of a second and 5 shots in 9/20 of a second at the Armory in Lewiston, MT. This speed record plaque is attached just as it was on the original revolver presented to McGivern on the sideplate of the firearm.

This revolver, serial number BBS0011, is part of a strictly limited run to commemorate Ed McGivern’s 1934 World Record-Breaking shooting in 1934. Appropriately, this special edition revolver has the McGivern metallic bead sights. This revolver is bright blue, round butt with patterned, checkered magna walnut grips, in its period-correct gold-toned hinged-edge paper box with paperwork.
It's a "one of 150" reproductions in Blue, produced in 2000, of Smith and Wesson's model of 1902 Target model which was a .38 pre numbered M&P frame. The original models came in other calibers of that era as well. McGivern preferred the 38 special in this gun. The difference between the model of 1905 and the model of 1902 was the grip. The 1902 was a round butt and the 1905 was a square butt. The model of 1902 ( with the round butt frame ) is the longest continuously-produced gun in the history of S & W.
This commemorative was also made in Nickel [ another 150 of these ] in the same year [ 2000 ] and 150 in the Case Hardened finish .
McGiverns record setter was 5 shots in 2/5ths of a second into a group that could be covered with a playing card at 15 feet. He did it twice that day to show that it wasn't a fluke.
