Blued S&W DA in .44-40 with Barrel Shortened to 3.8″

A blued Smith & Wesson DA chambered in the desirable .44-40 cartridge. Has about 40% of original high polish blue finish with most blue loss to the cylinder. Very little case coloring remains on the hammer and trigger. All screw heads are in nice shape. Barrel was apparently shortened by a gunsmith to 3.8”, and a properly inletted copper blade front sight was neatly re-installed. Has well-worn S&W checkered grips that fit well but that are probably from a later model. Serial # 1352X, so it was made circa 1890. It is in nice mechanical condition (both SA and DA), with tight lockup. Cylinder number matches the frame. Bore is shootable with some moderate pitting in the grooves, but quite distinct rifling. This would be a practical Federally-exempt concealed carry revolver! (BRFM-809)
