Smith & Wesson 2nd Model Russian Revolver "Japanese Contract"

Serial Number 4908   .44 S&W Russian Cal

Manufactured in 1874 this revolver was part of a contract of 5000 for the Japanese Government and issued to their Army and Navy.

These revolvers were not marked "Russian Model" as was standard practice on commercial revolvers, the Company stamped "reissue" patent date marking instead together with the marking for the Army or Navy, this example being for the Army.

This revolver has the rare 6½ in barrel and is in very good condition, retaining about 60% of its original finish with a excellent bore and action. All serial numbers are matching.
