S&W .44 Russian DA First Model With Factory Letter

Scarce S&W .44 Russian Double Action First Model with Roy Jinks-signed S&W factory letter. Serial # 394X. The factory letter confirms it was shipped on July 31, 1883, to M.W. Robinson in New York City in the current configuration. Poor exterior finish, but fine mechanical condition. Grips are in fairly good condition, with slightly worn checkering. Left grip had a chip at the base (shipment damage), but I was able make a neat Krazy Glue repair, to return the chipped pieces to their places, so it now looks fine. See the photos that were taken before that grip repair. Has a very slight cylinder wobble at full cock, otherwise fine mechanically. Light pitting in bore, but nice distinct rifling. (CGPR-044)  $1,500
