Your 455 Mk II Triple Lock 1st Model was likely sold commercially in the USA.

If you provide a serial # I can probably pin down when and to which S&W wholesaler.

Here's mine. Made in 1922(if I remember from when I did research) Nickel plated. The grips were butchered and a previous owner put pachmayr grips on it. At some point someone replaced thumb lock. Story is someone carried it in Great Lakes area, so plate is gone in places. I shoot handloads and it is dead on. I got from my late father-in-law. He wanted to be sure I had a good backup gun. It's great when men give women "real" gun instead of a little bitty 22.

Here's my old chrome plated TL with Carved Ivory Grips. It letters to New Orleans and spent a lot of time in Corpus Christi, TX.

Pretty darn nice, not a triple lock but a nice 44 2nd Model.

It's also great when a woman appreciates a "real" gun.

That's a beautiful Target model TL.

Do you mind sharing a serial # or partial #. I keep a database to help determine what percent the target models are of the total TL production.

Thank you,

Talking Triple Locks

Over the last 10 years I have developed a passion for triple lock projects and salvaged several bound for the parts bin. It started when I found a 5" barreled receiver at an AL gun show. It has taken me down the glory path in search of parts and in collecting shooter grade TLs. The intellect and the machine skills of those men who, generations ago, produced such fine revolvers that still function at 100% is monumental. We stand in the shadow of giants whenever we shoot these fine guns. If you don't have one, don't you think its time. Here are a few from my collection!

Here is mine. S/N 398. It required a few repairs to get it working. Unfortunately, when I finally did shoot it, the front sight flew off, never to be found. So right now it is in the hands of a smith to get a new one installed.
