    44 Special Hand Ejector Third Model of 1926

    Hello members. I’ve been reading your forum posts for awhile and decided to add a post of my own. I’m very impressed with the knowledge and passion for the 44 Specials I’ve seen here and was hoping to get some feedback on mine.
    I have a 44 Hand Ejector Third Model Special Order Variation. Serial # 34xxx. It was shipped from the factory in April 1930. It was shipped with a 6.5 inch barrel, blue finish, checkered walnut silver medallion square butt grips, the order was for a single unit with several special features. Square sights, grooved front and back of the grip straps and a groove trigger. It was billed at $40.00. The contract price of the Wolf and Klar was $21.90. My letter from Roy Jinks says this was very unusual for the time. I was hoping for some feedback and value of my 44. I know the value is based on not only the model, but also the condition. I know nothing about how to rate a condition so I refer to you, the members of this forum.
    I hope your all having a great spring. The snow is almost gone here in Minnesota. Looking forward to summer once again.
    Hope to hear from some of you.

    Great looking revolver from that time period IMHO. However, I am not any where close to being one to judge proper condition and value. I'm sure someone here will help out in that regard. The blueing wear, grip crack and rust freckling ( if that's how you spell it) will certainly detract from the value but than again, I am not the person to make an overall value judgement. However, if I was you, I would be more interested in seeing how it shoots. Once, again, it's a good looking classic.

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    Welocome to our forum. Very nice 44 spl. It is in great condition for its age. It does have a few issues but they will not detract from value as much as over aggressive cleaning or refinishing. Leave it the way it is for now until you get a better idea of value from more knowledgeable people on the forum. They’ll show up .

    Going by Fjestad's Blue book I'd say around 60%. I have no idea about value but since a desirable model probably still fairly pricey.

    Now you need to find a 624 to shoot so you won't mess up your W&K 1926. That's what I did. The wife went for that logic maybe yours will too. Great looking old Smith. Oh, you hang around these guy and you will probably buy more 44s.
