Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action First Model Revolver with Factory Letter and Holster Rig Attributed to Montana Lawman Dr. Joseph Kumpe. Made in 1882. This revolver came from the John Fox collection. The included factory letter states that this revolver was shipped on July 17, 1882 and delivered to M. W. Robinson of New York City. We know from signed letters from one Miller Hansen that the revolver came to him from a family friend in 1925, Dr. Joseph. M. Kumpe. Kumpe was born in La Grange, Alabama and studied medicine at the Alabama Medical College, and in 1882 moved to White Sulfur Springs, Montana. There he practiced medicine and was elected to the position of Meagher County coroner, and upon the death of the Sheriff, he was appointed to that position as well. During this time he carried out the duties of both offices. Kumpe was involved in the hanging of Henry Herbert Metzger, a murderer and subject of the article “The Strange Sombrero” from the “Pacific Northwest Quarterly” published in 1945. Kumpe is pictured in the article pronouncing Metzger dead after the hanging. Kumpe passed away on August 3, 1905 in Meagher County and was survived by his wife and three children. The revolver shows standard markings including matching serial numbers on the barrel latch, barrel, cylinder, and butt. Includes a period holster rig set up for a left-handed draw and containing 34 .44 Russian cartridges in the belt. The revolver and holster rig were reportedly used by Kumpe during his term in office as sheriff. There is also a dossier binder of information on the revolver and the history surrounding it, including the aforementioned letters, photocopies of “The Strange Sombrero” and Kumpe’s obituary, contact prints of photos of the Metzger hanging, among other information.  CONDITION: Very fine, showing 70% plus original nickel finish. There is some hazing of the nickel in areas as well as some very mild scattered oxidation. Nearly all of the blue remains on the trigger guard and 60% bull case colors on the hammer. The holster rig is also very fine with light use/storage evidence. A great piece of Montana history! (UABP-KK-826)

CONDITION: Very fine overall with 40% original blue overall with the remainder in a pleasant gray patina. The cylider has gone gray. Bore is fine and bright with very light pitting.

A scarce Smith and Wesson Double Action Frontier chambered in .44-40 Winchester with some Nez Perce Indian tribal history. Here is another great “off the ranch” revolver, from the Nez Perce Reservation in north-central Idaho. Has a 6-1/2″ barrel, 1-9/16″ cylinder, fixed sights, DA/SA action, and original black gutta percha grips that are worn and faded to a pleasant chocolate brown. Single action mechanism locks back but the hammer will release with thumb pressure. Double action works well and locks the cylinder tightly. Bore shows light pitting but is bright, with good rifling. Serial numbers match on butt, cylinder, latch, barrel, and grips. Grips are also inscribed inside with the Indian name “Sam Penny” on one side and “Lapwai, Idaho” on the other. Original nickel finish is only about 70% but the factory markings are clear. One grip panel has a chip, and there are some small indentations at the butt, where this revolver’s frame was apparently used at least once, to drive tacks. (So you can tell folks: “This gun is a tack driver.”) Please see photos for details. Manufactured between 1886-1898, with just 15,340 produced in.44-40.  (The mast majority of antique S&W large frame DAs were chambered in .44. S&W Russian.) This one falls in the middle of that range at #642X — circa 1892. (EPLS-616)

S&W .38 Single Action Second Model Revolver.  Serial # 1610X.  (Made circa 1888.)  3-1/4″ barrel. Only about 40% original nickel finish, and nice grips. I bought this gun in Illinois. Action needs repair–cylider does not advance when cocked. Note that since this is a black powder era S&W, so it would be safe to shoot only with very mild handloads, even if repaired. (CPR-038)  $725

Desirable Early .38 S&W 5-shot spur trigger Model 2 “Baby Russian” (with long ejector rod housing) revolver. This one has about 95% of its nickel finish. This is a single action-only model. This one won’t hold full cock, so it is being sold as “non-shooter.” The black gutta percha grip panels are both in excellent condition. One side plate screw is marred. Bore has Very Good rifling, and some frost in the grooves. I’d rate it 6/10. Serial # 703XX.  Note that since this is a black powder era S&W. So even if it is repaired, it would be safe to shoot only with very mild handloads. This revolver came from a ranch in north Idaho. (# BKL-572)
