Item #45108

S&W No. 1 1/2 2nd Issue Revolver

  • Price: $495.00
  • Maker: S&W
  • Model: No. 1 1/2
  • Caliber: .32

  • Description: Serial #104895, .32 RF, 3 1/2" barrel with a good bore that has spots of darker pitting and freckling along its length. This revolver has matching assembly numbers on the frame, barrel, and cylinder: "QQ5". The metal retains 75-80% of the original nickel finish with dark brown freckling where the plating has flaked or worn through, most noticeably on the cylinder and breech-end of the barrel assembly. The rosewood grips are original and numbered to the gun on the interior, with small handling marks and minor finish loss on both panels. Additional, handwritten pencil markings indicate that the gun was "Bought in Bellefonte" in 1960 by someone with the initials, "CHW". The lock-up is good, but there is a tiny amount of lateral play in the barrel, the latch-piece has an impact blemish that has left it fairly sharp on one side, and the action is fully functional. This is a very good nickel-plated No. 1 1/2 tip-up, and would make a nice representative example for a collection. Antique
