Default 44 Double Action 1st Model

this is the last time i'm changing the designation of this gun. LOL shows how much I know about antiques. got this today at an estate auction. it was listed as a .45 caliber so I made sure the auctioneer announced that it was not a .45 Colt. it is in fact a .44 Russian as pointed out by Guy. there were only 2 of us bidding on it. made somewhere in the 1880s. I'll ask Roy for a ship month and year. it was refinished at the factory 8-22. no number inside the grips. don't know if they did that on MOP grips. SN 7312 on the butt and cylinder. this is the first antique S&W I have ever owned. I just couldn't pass it up. Lee
