Smith & Wesson 38 Safety Hammerless, New Departure, Excellent!
• Smith & Wesson 38 Safety Hammerless, New Departure, sn:95877 This double-action revolver, chambered in .38 S&W caliber, is in excellent condition, and has a 3.25” round ribbed barrel with an about excellent bore showing only some scattered minor pitting. The metal surfaces retain about 99% original nickel, the loss being very minor high edge wear on the sight and a few pinprick areas of surface oxidation. The third model latch and the trigger guard show excellent blue, and the trigger shows excellent case colors faded only on its face. The checkered hard rubber Smith & Wesson monogram grips rate about excellent and have faded slightly to brown, they are scratch-numbered to the gun. The bottom of the butt shows some spiderweb crazing of the nickel, and there is some extremely minor frosting on the underside of the barrel and frontstrap. The gun comes in an original Smith & Wesson hinge-top box with the red pebbled paper covering and orange end label. The box is unnumbered and rates about excellent. See photos.
