    Nickel .44 special

    I have a nickel .44 special hand ejector which I believe to have been manufactured around 1930. Stag handles and I believe a 5 inch barrel. Near perfect condition. Can anyone tell me an average value on them? Also on the inside of the frame where the cylinder swings out, there is a small star stamped into the metal. Anyone know what that could mean? I called s&w and the guy told me about the manufacture date but had no idea about the "star". Any help would be awesome!

    The star means a factory re-work, re-finish or some sort of other mod. Pics would help.

    Maybe you met a new guy or someone with S&W for a few years. I have been around S&W revolvers almost six decades, even been to the armory academy and I am still learning.

    But if you have questions, this is a pretty astute group.
