serial #47343, 44 Special, 6 1/2'' barrel with an excellent bore. This 1936-made revolver remains in very good plus condition. The metal surfaces retain about 85% plus original blue finish with the backstrap, knuckle and toe worn to gunmetal gray, high edge wear, thinning finish around the rear of the triggerguard, a few light scratches and a turn ring. The service hammer and trigger retain bold case-hardened colors with light operational wear and the lanyard loop is gray. The revolver features unmarked carved mother-of-pearl grips with eagle / tree / leaf carvings that rate about very good with some light soiling and a check on the lower left panel. A piece of material may have broken off or it is curling up slightly but is not really noticeable due to the ornate carving. All appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the gun and it still functions mechanically. The front sight has been altered to a semi-ramp configuration and the lanyard loop pin is an ad-hoc replacement. The gun includes a hinged purple factory box labeled for a 6 1/2'' S&W 44 Military but is numbered to another gun. Factory records will indicate this gun was shipped on January 16, 1936 to Washington State Patrol, Olympia, Washington. This gun has seen some honest use over the years but still remains highly desirable by the collector or 44 Special enthusiasts.
