    Nice! Is the ejector star blue or nickel? Same with the hammer and trigger. They look nickel in the pictures, but can't really tell.

    The ejector rod knob puts it in the 1920's, maybe earlier depending on the S/N. The grips are a later addition. One of the folks with access to s/n lookup will be by to give you a better estimate.

    Looks to be shipped 1904-06 & refinished. Model #'s didn't come until after 1957.

    It is all nickel as far as I know it has not been redone my wife’s uncle had it for the last 40 years. According to S&W it was made in 1905

    Does anyone know where I can get a look at a schematic of the pistol. If you go to eject shells and are not holding the cylinder it slides up with the extractor can’t see if there is a pin or something missing

    If the ejector star, hammer and trigger are nickel plated, it has been refinished somewhere along the way. Original nickel guns had the hammer and trigger color case hardened and the ejector star blued. Not to diss it, it will make a great shooter. But not a collectible.

    Take it to the range and enjoy it. 32 longs are a really fun round to shoot.
