In 1926, the Texas firm of Wolf&Klar placed an order with S&W for a new revolver. The result was the .44 Hand Ejector Third Model,identical to the Second Model except for the addition of the shrouded ejector rod. This is a very rare S&W with less than 5000 being manufactured from 1926 to 1940. The 1926 Model was made only in .44 Special and was carried by numerous peace officers especially in the Southwest. Texas Ranger Lone Wolf Gonzaullas carried a pair of .44 Special S&Ws that were probably the 1926 Model. This beautiful revolver shows minor use and is in near mint condition. Number 52201 is accompanied by a Factory Letter which states that it was shipped to Edward K. Tryon Co.,Philadelphia,PA on Feb 14,1941 with 6.5" bbl,blue finish and checkered walnut magna grips. This one would be hard to improve upon. SEND EMAIL ADDRESS FOR ADDITIONAL PHOTOS.
