Smith & Wesson 44 Russian First Model Commercial

This S&W Russian Model revolver is chambered for the 44 Russian cartridge and features a 7-1/2” barrel (apparently shortened from 8”), nickel plate, scroll engraving and stag grips. The front sight is not original and its installation after the barrel was shortened obliterates all but the H of the word “SMITH” on the barrel rib. It retains about 95% nickel while the bore is about 30% lightly pitted and the stag grips are completely sound. The serial number on the butt is 13262, the number on the cylinder is 162/G and the number on the latch seems to be 806. Under the right grip panel at the heel on the frame is the number 162. The brownish material on the nickel seems to be dried preservative of some kind. An interesting old guy who spoke with great authority back in the day..
