Smith & Wesson K-38 Combat Masterpiece 38 Spl 1949 1st Year 99% Original Finish + Sterling & Gold Grips

This outstanding pistol was made in the first year of production of the legendary K-38 Combat Masterpiece (SN K 82362 = 1949) and it is in superb condition. The assembly number on the crane and in crane mortise is 1000 and the serial number on the butt matches the barrel, cylinder and ejector star. It features a 4 pinned and ribbed barrel with Baughman Quick Draw front sight, fully adjustable rear sight, serrated combat trigger, serrated front and back straps, case colored hammer and trigger, 5 screw frame and it comes with classic Mexican sterling silver and gold grips. It retains 99% original blue with very slight thinning on either side of the muzzle and a couple of tiny oxidation spots and very slight thinning on the guard bow and a very faint cylinder line while the bore is perfect as are the beautiful grips which feature the classic corn flower motif. A striking example of one of the most successful revolver designs to be offered by any manufacturer in history. Si Senor!
