Cased Smith & Wesson 1st Model .38 Single Action Baby Russian


Built in 1876-1877 this truly extraordinary .38 Single Action 1st Model AKA Baby Russian is equipped with a 3 1/4” barrel, original nickel finish and the numbers matching checkered black hard rubber service grips. Take special note of the alligator leather period case with royal purple velvet lining complete with the cleaning bottle brush and scarce original adjustment tool.

Bar none the finest example of the model we have offered for sale this wonderfully crisp Baby Russian is nearly new in every respect with extremely bright and clear original nickel finish which shows only the faintest of collector type handling evidence. The bore and cylinder chambers are flawless and the mechanical working order is perfect. Knowledgeable collectors are aware of the extreme rarity of high condition examples as well as the virtual nonexistence of period casing. Overall this Baby Russian presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own what is perhaps the finest cased example extant.
