Hey to all,
I have a question. Does perhaps someone know what mean these two signs on this revolver? S&W Model 1905, 2nd change, serial number 143.8xx .

The hammer looks wrong for S&W. Looks like an earlier European style.
Here's one article on the Spanish copies. And another excerpted from the 1945 book Smith & Wesson Hand Guns by McHenry and Roper, Chapter XXI, page 119 (at least in the original copy).

BTW, welcome to the forum from Oregon wine country!
