Smith Manufacturer Rockfall, Conn, USA.&nbsp; On the top strap along the front outer edge is:&nbsp; Patented Dec. 20, 1881 32-100 Caliber.&nbsp; Note that the .32-100 caliber is the same as .32 S&W.&nbsp; 5 shot fluted cylinder, and spur trigger.&nbsp; The action is tight and strong and the hammer functions as it should in half cock and full cock.&nbsp; The cylinder seems to be a bit out of time when it indexes while cocking the&nbsp;hammer.&nbsp; Checkered hard rubber grips with the Smith monogram initials at the top, with some very light scratches and the left grip has a bit of light wear on the checkering.&nbsp; The grips have no cracks or chips.&nbsp; The top break action is tight when in the closed position, and the ejector rod functions smoothly when operated.&nbsp;</p> <p>This model of revolver was made during the 1880's and it is estimated that only a few thousand of them were made.&nbsp; Collectibility is based on its distinctive brass contruction and unique "T" shaped barrel latch containing a floating firing pin.&nbsp; Rare pistol.</p> <p>Condition Very Good.&nbsp; No FFL Required.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><span id="ctl00_MainContent_UCListingDetail1_Description"></span>&nbsp;</p></body></html>
