Smith and Wesson N.M. No 3 Coast Guard Revolver

.44 Russian caliber, 6" barrel, S/N 25775. Blue finish, case hardened hammer and trigger and triggerguard. Checkered walnut grips. Matching numbers on frame and cylinder, right grip pencil numbered to the gun. Comes with an article done by Scott Meadows in the Gun Report on "Martial Smith & Wesson New Model 3 Revolvers," as well as an article that was written by Jim Supica and Richard Nahas, "Top Break Revolvers."

Very good, retaining some of the original high blue finish, with wear and loss, particularly on the high edges. A line through the cylinder stops. Grips are very good, shows some use. Triggerguard and hammer with some case colors showing. Bore is very good. Very rare Martial Arm.
