Description

This is a nice 3rd Model S&W safety hammerless DA revolver chambered for the .38 S&W center fire cartridge. It is the desirable blued finish, but it is a re-blue. 3 1/4" barrel which is common for a hammerless gun as these were made to be carried as pocket guns.   Third models were produced from 1890 to 1898.   Shortly after their successful introduction of their double action top-break revolver design in 1880, Smith and Wesson began development of a new gun that was purely double action with no exposed hammer.  The model was known by three different names.   Internally, Smith and Wesson called this design its "Safety Hammerless" model.   However, to show that this gun was something new and different for S&W, it was marketed to the public as the "New Departure" model. Finally, the third name this gun went by was a nickname dubbed by the American public which referred to it as a "lemon squeezer."   Any one of those three names applies.  Serial number 120569. The gun is mechanically perfect with a bright shinny bore
