Product Summary

When the supply of M1911 pistols began to run low during World War I, the US Army commissioned a new revolver to augment their supply. The Smith & Wesson Model 1917 was essentially an adaptation of that company's Second Model .44 Hand Ejector, chambered instead for .45 ACP, employing a shortened cylinder allowing for use of half-moon clips, and a lanyard ring on the butt of the square butt frame. This new revolver also served to replace a range of 1890's-era .38 caliber Colt and Smith & Wesson revolvers that had demonstrated inadequate stopping power during the Philippine-American War. This double-action revolver has aftermarket grip panels and has been reblued. The knob from the cylinder rod is gone. The revolver's grips are in good condition and its metal and bore are in fair condition.
