Engraved MOTHER of PEARL Grip SMITH & WESSON .38 SAFETY HAMMERLESS Revolver
TURN OF THE CENTURY Top Break Smith & Wesson!
Here we present an Engraved 4th Model Smith & Wesson .38 S&W Top Break Safety Hammerless Revolver with Mother-of-Pearl Grips, made circa 1898-1907 in Springfield, Massachusetts.
This revolver was made to be a simple, compact and reliable firearm that one could carry in a pocket or a holster around the turn of the 20th Century. This revolver features an internal hammer design to remove risk of snagging or stopping the action. There is a grip safety built into the back of the grip frame. The frame is a top-break design that activates the automatic ejector. These are very nice features from the turn of the 20th Century! They were known as “The New Departure” to reflect the company’s new approach to designing revolvers.
The overall condition is fine. Original nickel and blued finish with neat, period hand engraving. The action is strong all the way around. The bore is bright. The nickel finish is reflective and vibrant with a bit of wear in high traffic areas. This is a very smart-looking revolver that has been well-kept and cherished for over 100 years!
