Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #3867, 44 Special, 6 1/2" barrel with an excellent bore exhibiting a few very thin traces of frosting in several areas. This 1909 made Triple Lock revolver was returned to the factory on January, 1974 and refurbished in their standard blue. The metal surfaces retain about 98% factory reapplied blue with light high edge wear and a light turn ring. The grip frame and cylinder are correctly marked and dated for the standard factory blue refinish but the cylinder has a subdued matte look. The cylinder is heavily pitted and it is obvious the factory could only remove a finite amount of metal before compromising its strength. The standard hammer and trigger retain traces of case-hardened colors with the rest faded to gray showing light oxidation stains and minor pitting. The diamond checkered walnut factory grips with gold S&W medallions rate good to very good with light diamond point wear, a few dents and minor scuffs. Soiling on the inside of the grips has long since faded any penciled numbers but all other appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the gun and it still functions mechanically. The gun includes a contemporary two-piece blue factory box with reinforced corners labeled and numbered to a different revolver. A very nice factory refurbished New Century revolver.
