Smith & Wesson No 1 2nd Issue 22 Short Tip-Up S&W

This S&W No. 1 is a second issue with three patent dates on the cylinder. It has matching serial numbers (55378) on the frame and inside the right grip panel (the barrel and cylinder are not numbered). The barrel and cylinder are pleasant mix of gray and brown patina with ancient pin-prick pitting scattered about while the bore grades at Antique Very Good to Excellent with some scattered pitting and good, strong rifling and the grips are sound with light handling marks and an age check on the right panel running from the butt directly below the escutcheon angling up and ending to the right of the escutcheon. The frame retains perhaps 15% sliver mostly on the front, back and bottom straps. Function is perfect and frame lock-up has only the slightest movement. Because of its condition this little revolver seems to represent a sound investment and because itís an antique, it has a better chance of not being confiscated if the dems use voter fraud in 2020 to the extent they did in 2018.
