to the forums from the Wiregrass! You have a .44 Hand Ejector, 2nd Model, Target from 1926. It is possible it was originally nickel, but we need to see the barrel flat under the ejector rod and the left side of the grip frame. The grips are target models from much later...1968 or newer. Original grips would have been no medallion round top service grips. Those targets are much better for shooting, believe me.
