I received this S&W revolver from my grandfather this weekend. He told me it was his great uncles service weapon when he was an officer in Illinois. I've been doing some research online the past couple days trying to narrow the year/change and estimated value though I have no intentions to sell...
First off... great forum, congratulations to all for such awesome work!
This revolver belonged to my great grandfather.
After reading over many of the Q&As in this forum and doing some research(a), I was able to gather this information.
I did my best with the pictures but that...
Got this pistol years ago and just relocated it. Never shot it. Original finish was blue (99% gone). Barrel is 6 1/2 inch length. Six shooter. No additional numbers or identifiers other than that pictured. Any help appreciated. Would like a ballpark value if available.
