Description: SMITH & WESSON MODEL 1 1/2 TRANSITIONAL MODEL c1869.

FLAYDERMAN'S GUIDE VALUES THE PISTOL AT $1,750. V.G.

SERIAL #28273 FALLS INTO THE RANGE OF SERIAL NUMBERS REFERRED TO AS THE TRANSITIONAL MODEL, MADE BY FITTING FIRST ISSUE CYLINDERS AND BARRELS TO SECOND ISSUE FRAMES WITHIN THE SERIAL NUMBER RANGE OF 27200 AND 28800. ONLY AN ESTIMATED 600 TO 1,500 WERE PRODUCED BEFORE THE END OF PRODUCTION OF THE MODEL 1 1/2.

THE CONDITION FOR THIS ONE IS DESCRIBED AS BETTER THAN "VERY GOOD" BUT NOT "EXCELLENT" WHICH WOULD COMMAND A VALUE OF $3750. EVEN THE ORIGINAL BIRD HEAD ROSEWOOD GRIPS ARE NUMBERED TO MATCH THE FRAME NUMBER ON THE BUTT; AND THEY ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION AS COLLECTORS CAN FIND. NO DINGS OR FINISH WEAR AT ALL. 3.5" BORE IS SHARP AND EXCELLENT INSIDE.

HISTORICLY, 450 OF THESE REVOLVERS WERE SHIPPED TO C.W.MAY CO. FOR EXPORT TO JAPAN, WITH JUST 200 BEING SHIPPED TO J.W.STORRS.

I WOULD SAY THAT THIS PISTOL IS SHOOTABLE, BEING THAT EVERYTHING IS IN EXCELLENT OPERATING ORDER.
