Default .455 Mark II Hand Ejector 2nd Model

This is the lot mate to the triple lock I posted a thread on earlier today. It is SN: 30825 and in a little finer condition, finish wise, than the triple lock.

Unlike the triple lock, it is absent of the numerous proof marks. There is one mark on the butt, please see picture, the auction house suggested might be a Canadian proof. I have no idea and would appreciate thoughts from others with more insight.

The Crown with 11 under it, on the base of the butt strap, is a Canadian inspectors marking.

That one is certainly in beautiful condition. Did you determine when it was shipped, and possibly, where?

Looking at Jim's data, I am thinking very late 1915(?)

Thank you AlanD.

No, I have not Jack. Your guestimate sounds reasonable. After reviewing the "Condition Evaluation" section of the SCSW" 4th Edition especially pg. 29, I also agree an "Excellent Condition" rating would be fair for this revolver. The negative is it lacks serial number matching stocks; although I have located correct vintage walnut gold medallion stocks for it.

Nice one!

Here's my 2nd Mod. .455:



I posted it many years ago at this thread: S&W .455 Mk. II Hand Ejector 2nd Model #69234


Now just find the time and ammo to shoot them!

And if you join the S&W Collector's Association, you could request a month and year shipping date for this revolver and for the other S&Ws that you own. And that's just one of the benefits of SWCA membership.
