    Default Introducing my Smith and Wesson M1917 revolver and accessories.

    I got this nice M1917 revolver from the same guy as the previously posted M1911A1 pistol. It is sorta unique as it still has the beautiful, bright, polished, factory finish along with the case hardening on the hammer and trigger. Most of the revolvers were reworked and refinished sometime after WWI, but I would say this one has remained unfired. I say this due to the fact that there is no discoloring at the chamber mouths or the feed ramp itself. Lastly, there is no brass colored ring or any wear/discoloring around the firing pin hole in the frame.

    The group picture is the pistol along with some WWI/WWII web gear, holsters and accessories. The holster on the web belt is the standard WWI M1909 version, with the butt forward. The other two separate holsters are the M2 and M4 model holsters that were manufactured during WWII. BTW. The cleaning rods are the three different lengths made by Smith and Wesson along with the original box. The blue ammo box with the hard to read label is a box of .45 blanks.

    I am speechless...
    Thanks for posting.
    Take care...Thanos.

    P.S. What kind of .45s are in the left half-moon clip? They appear to have a weird projectile.

    Thanos, sorry for the late reply but I did not see your question until now. Those .45s are shot cartridges used for survival purposes.
