Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! S&W called your revolver the .44 Double Action Frontier and made 15,340 between 1886 and 1913. We need pictures to tell you much more.

One thing about any double action revolver and that is you'd better have a strong trigger finger. I have 2 and both are light in single action and terribly heavy in double.

Hey Flip; I got a few guitar exercisers that you can work out one finger at a time. Helps strengthen the hand overall and does wonders to tame a d-a pull. trade name is GripMaster and they come in various strengths from light to Hercules!

They don't have to be. Most all my D/A Smiths have an 8 pound D/A pull and are very smooth.
Guess I'm spoiled by the 1/2 ounce triggers on my hunting guns. I just cock and shoot actually. 8 pounds is excessive and results in pulling the muzzle up as you pull the trigger.
