Antique Pair Of Cased Smith & Wesson First Model #3 .44 Russian. The serial Numbers are #6484 & 7846. They are about 60% condition.One has a little rust but not too bad.The bores are clean and the action works on both. The mahogany wooden case looks original and has the key that locks it. The .44 Russian also known as the .44 S&W Russian, is a blackpowder center fire metallic revolver cartridge developed by Smith & Wesson in 1870. The .44 russian design marked the first use of an internally lubricated bullet in modern firearm ammunition. I got these from a collector in Phoenix, Arizona about five years ago.
