Smith & Wessons in December 2011 Auction
Auction Company is proud to offer over 100 Smith & Wesson pistols
and revolvers in its upcoming Premiere Firearms Auction December 2nd,
3rd and 4th! This grouping of Smith & Wesson's spans the companies
entire 150 plus year history of operation and manufacture. From the
very first Smith & Wesson's produced to some of the most recently
manufactured models. Starting with the first lever action magazine
pistols originally developed by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson this
auction has two examples of both the large frame .38 caliber and the
small frame .31 caliber Smith & Wesson Lever Action Magazine
pistols. The finest of the group is Lot number 1276 an Outstanding
Large Frame Smith & Wesson Lever Action Magazine Pistol which
retains a strong 80% original brown finish on the barrel! Moving to the
tip-ups we have an Outstanding Cased Factory Engraved Smith &
Wesson Model 1-1/2 New Model Revolver with Relief Carved Ivory Grips.
This gun is really the whole package; it's masterfully engraved,
factory cased, and has the most beautifully carved ivory grips that we
at Rock Island Auction have seen on a Smith & Wesson! If you like
the large frame models then this may be one sale to attend in person.
Headlined by a truly one-of-a-kind Only Known New York Engraved U.S.
Contract Smith & Wesson 1st Model Schofield Single Action Revolver
with Kelton Safety, Ivory Grips and Factory Letter. If you are
missing a Second model Schofield from your collection then lot number
1346 is a must have. It is with out a doubt the finest of either
Schofield model we have ever offered! Also of interest is a Unique and
Rare Unserialized Smith & Wesson Second Model Russian Single Action
Revolver with possible Russian Contract Markings. Lastly our pre and
