Smith & Wesson Model 1, 2nd Issue .22 Blackpowder VG Mfg ca. 1865  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Pre-1899
Description: Even though this old revolver was manufactured well prior to the 1898 cutoff date for compliance with the 1968 Gun Control Act, it will chamber .22 Short Cartridges, so we’re treating its sale as we would any other modern firearm. This old revolver was manufactured around 1865, according to serialization in the Supica and Nahas book. It’s the First Model, Second Issue. Brass frame retains about 60 percent of its original nickel finish which has, obviously, turned purplish. External pitting, as the photo shows, is light but denser near the muzzle, and diminishes toward the cylinder. Barrel inscription reads only Smith & Wesson Springfield MASCH. Serial number is 47xxx. Internal pitting inside barrel is moderate and only about 30 percent of the bore’s internal surface. Rifling is strong and visible. All 7 cylinder chambers are quite good internally, with no conspicuous pitting. Cylinder bears the 1855, 1859, and 1860 patent dates, very weak. The finish has been buffed at some point. Mechanism is fully functional, but we strongly recommend against firing this revolver. We consider this revolver to be in Very Good condition although, like a cleaned coin, it is difficult to grade. We’re going on the strength of the remaining Nickel and brass. Both grip panels are intact but have hairline cracks from center of frame butt. Left panel’s does not go beyond the butt area, but right panel’s goes about ¼ of the way up – toward the hammer. For its age, this is a remarkably well-preserved specimen. We’re offering it for only $689.95
