Product Summary

The .39/.44 embodies all the best features of Smith & Wesson's handguns, ensuring accuracy, efficiency, reliability, and ruggedness. Often known as the Heavy Duty, the .38/.44 was introduced in 1930, built in response to law-enforcement's requirement for an arm that would shoot a high speed round which could penetrate car bodies and bullet proof vests. The collaboration between Smith & Wesson, Remington and Elmer Keith produced the 38/44 S&W cartridge which could launch a 158 grain bullet at 1175 fps and producing 460 foot pounds of energy. Smith & Wesson's special processed chrome, nickel steel cylinders readily handle this powerful round. Intorduced a year later in 1931, the Outdoorsman is the target variant of the .38/.44 that includes adjustable sights and a 6-1/2" barrel. This revolver features a deep blued finish and mother-of-pearl grips. Its grips, its metal, and its bore are all in excellent condition.
