    Nice revolver! A wise conversion as the 45 LC is a much better man stopper then the .455, Ray

    What a beauty of a rev....BILL.
    Is the Canadian canvas holster for the Air Force/Corps? Identical holsters are issued today for the greek Air Force ground personnel...
    Best regards, Thanos.

    Nice S&W Bill. I enjoyed shooting my 1915 W&S .455 and S&W 1916 British contract .455 at the range this weekend, along with my 1916 SMLE .303 rifle.

    The Smith and Wesson is my favorite pistol. Very nice one.

    Canadian made P37 webbing equipment was used by many Commonwealth countries-Australia and New Zealand were big users for example as Australia didn't have the manufacturing capacity for woven equipment till late in the war. Being Canadian made doesn't necessarily mean Canadian use. Blue Grey is RAF issue and by extension RCAF, RAAF, RNZAF etc. The lanyard is the US type for the M1911/1911A1 Auto but this pistol was a standard issue type for both World Wars for Canadian forces amongst other guns, so it would have been around about the place to be used on a revolver. The conversion to Long Colt would have been post service use as that round was not a service revolver type for Canada (except for a small number of Colt New Service pistols bought for the Boer war in 1900).
