Take a Shot at History
This Smith & Wesson pistol was produced early 1918. The pistol’s serial number is 25054. It has the standard 5 1/2 inch barrel chambered for the 45 A.C.P. standard military cartridge. The bore and chambers are in bright minty condition. The barrel is correctly marked under the barrel United States Property. The smooth wood grips have the early style dished grip top. There is one very small chip on the left grip panel. Other than that these grips are in fine condition. The cylinder crane hinge still has the spring plunger intact that keeps the cylinder from bouncing around during loading. The original bluing would rate a strong 98% condition. The color cased hammer and trigger retain 98% of that finish. The action works smoothly as would be expected from Smith & Wesson. The holster is in very fine condition as made by Grafton And Knight in 1918. The ammunition pouch is by R.H. Long dated 1918. The ammunition is dated 1918 also. The web belt is the model 1912 style. This makes for a very nice original display rig from the First World War, as every thing is in very fine original as issued condition!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
