Description:

All New Model No. 3 frames were manufactured by 1898, therefore making them antique. The revolver has a blue finish which is hard to find with this model as most were plated in nickel. Matching serial numbers are found on the butt, cylinder, barrel and barrel latch.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 90% original blue finish with some thinning to patina and high edge wear on the balance. 95% original case colors remain on the hammer and trigger guard. The grips are excellent with crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. A very nice example of a blued New Model No. 3 Target .38-44 Revolver for your antique S&W collection.
