.38 S & W. Single/Double Action Third Model. Mechanically, it appears to be in very good functioning condition, Break top, self-ejecting case extractor; lockup is tight, with no play between frame and cylinder assembly. Cylinder has very little end play (maybe 1/32"-1/16") and some slight cylinder rotational play (estimate 1/32"-1/16", at most). Beveled cylinder flutes (i.e., front corners rounded). Pivot hinge is extremely tight, i.e., has no horizontal or vertical play. Barrel bore is shiny and has generally sharp lands and smooth grooves, though there appears to be either some slight pitting on the edges of some of the lands and/or it may be lead/residue fouling that MAY possibly be removable. Metal finish: slight amount of bluing mostly a grayish/brownish patina; there are some very small pits (but not very deep) on both sides of the barrel. 4" ribbed barrel. 5-shot: chambers of cylinder and the barrel are in perfect condition. Round butt grip frame, factory/checkered S & W monogrammed black grips; checkering is only very slightly worn (likely "polished" from handling/carrying) on left grip panel; on right grip panel, checkering on rear half of grip panel has been worn smooth; otherwise, grips are in good shape with not cracks. Recoil shield appears to be only slightly worn. No box or manual. Hammer-mounted firing pin which appears to have no wear, i.e., on tip. Serial number 223602,which appears to indicate it was the 104,601st Third Model made (serial number 223602 minus the beginning serial number of 119001 = 104,601, presuming the below serial number range included only consecutive numbers, i.e., no gaps in the numbering sequence). Includes provenance, i.e., original S & W factory letter signed by Roy Jinks, renowned S & W historian/expert, which states years Third Model was produced (1884-1895), number manufactured (203,700), serial number range (119001-322700), when and where shipped to (7-29-1889; Simmons Hardware Co., St. Louis, MO), etc. Reason for "No Return" policy is because gun is completely as described in text and shown in the photos.

NOTE: Reason for "No Return" policy is that gun is completely as described in the ad text and as shown in the photos.
