Smith & Wesson M1917 Brazilian 1937  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Pre-1945
Description: The M1917 Revolver (formally United States Revolver, Caliber .45, M1917) was a U.S. six-shot revolver of .45 ACP caliber. It was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1917 to supplement the standard M1911 .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol during World War I. Afterwards, it was primarily used by secondary and non-deployed troops. There were two variations of the M1917, one from Colt and one from S&W.

The military service of the M1917 did not end with the First World War. In the mid-1930s, Brazil ordered many thousands of M1917s for their military. Now out of service, surplus examples can be identified by the large Brazilian crest stamped on their sideplates. They are sometimes referred to as the M1937 or the Brazilian-contract M1917.

While these revolvers were originally blued, S&W M1917 revolvers rebuilt during and after World War II may have been parkerized during arsenal rebuild or under a refurbish contract with S&W.

THE REVOLVER ON OFFER HERE HAS THE BRAZILIAN CREST WITH THE DATE '1937' BENEATH IT. THIS GUN WAS PARKERIZED' BUT A HINT OF BLUE STILL SHOWS AT THE BASE OF THE TRIGGER AND HAMMER.
