not sure of the year but the paper work in the box says 1950 44 target revolver no. 24
on the blue box
production code 100782 spec. order no 4130
I am not a smith nut just love them N frames.the guys at the smith forum said there was only 500 made and very few with the 4 inch barrel.
I guess a collector gun???.I picked it up in a shop here as nib for 300.00 and from what I understand it's worth over double that.
went out for a shoot and it is very accurate and has a trigger thats on par with my python.2 or 3 lb trigger pull.
my grandkids can fight over this one.
