Antique SMITH & WESSON 1st Model “BABY RUSSION” .38 S&W Caliber Revolver
WILD WEST Antique Single Action Revolver
Here we present an antique 1st Model Smith & Wesson “Baby Russian” .38 S&W Single Action Revolver, made circa 1877 in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Smith & Wesson First Models were produced from 1876 to 1877 and were Smith & Wesson’s first .38 caliber revolver. The first model of the .38 Single Action can be identified by its smooth barrel and the long extractor shroud similar to the Smith & Wesson Model 3 Russian pistol, which lent it the nickname “Baby Russian”. It had a spur trigger and lacked a trigger guard.
Models were available in blued or nickel-plated finishes, and the majority were produced with 3-1/4 inch or 4-inch barrels, although barrels as long as 7 inches were sold. Serial numbers range from 1 through to 25,548 between 1876 and 1877. Total production of all models of the S&W .38 Single Action exceeded just over 223,000.
The overall condition is very good. Excellent action. The bore is semi-bright and remains in good shape. Legible markings. Good grips. Numbers match. Some original finish remains.
