Description Update (3/14/18 and 3/22/18): No caliber markings on the right side; is a .455 HE frame, shipped in a special shipment of two guns to A&F in 1916

serial #46751, 45 Colt, 6 1/2" barrel with an excellent bore. The .44 Hand Ejectors 2nd Model were made mostly in 44 Special but small quantities trickled out in other calibers and are considered rare; it is reported that only 727 were made in 45 Colt. This revolver is not only chambered for a rare caliber but remains in grand condition retaining about 99% original blue finish with a faint turn ring on the cylinder, a very light oxidation stain on the backstrap and a few minor handling marks. The service style trigger and service hammer retain beautiful swirls of case-hardened color as does the lanyard loop. The diamond checkered walnut factory grips with gold S&W medallions are numbered to the gun and rate excellent. All appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the gun and function is excellent. The left side of the barrel has the company name with patent dates on the top, but no caliber markings on the right side. This gun has not seen much use and only lacks the factory box to "send it over the top". A beautiful 1935-made 2nd Model in a rare caliber that no collector should pass up. (88620-13) {C&R} (3500/4500) SOLD FOR $7,475.00
