S&W 38/44 Heavy Duty 6-1/2” w/box  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers
Description: Smith & Wesson 38/44 Heavy Duty in the scarce 6-1/2” barrel. Comes with original gold box numbered to the gun. S/N S156107, *mfg June 1958. Gun is in superb condition with approx. 99%+ original finish; the only thing keeping this from being NIB is several minute marks on the frame (e-mail for additional photos). All screws appear untouched. The mint condition diamond magna grips are only 4 serial numbers off from the gun, likely a production whoops (but we’ll never know). Excellent bore. Note: the barrel is not serial numbered. The box is labeled as a 38/44 Heavy Duty revolver with a 6-1/2” barrel, nickel finish with a “blue” sticker over the word nickel; perhaps indicating that they ran out of the correct boxes or there was never a box made for the 6-1/2 blue 38/44 HD as it is a scarce combination. One corner of the box cover is separated. *per discussion with S&W historian this gun was made June 1958 and will require an FFL for shipment; it is not on the ATF C&R list. Mr Jinks also indicated that the lack of a serial number on the barrel and cylinder was period to the manufacture of this gun at that time. Also the mis-matched grips (by 4 numbers) was a likely production issue and not uncommon. Sold as a collector’s item only, no warranty written or implied, always have the gun checked out by a qualified gunsmith before firing…..3-day non-firing inspection – any disassembly voids returns – shipping not refundable ….FFL required….$25 shipping (to lower 48)..….
