    An old friend stopped over yesterday, first I've seen him in many years.
    He had told me many times of a S&W revolver that was given to him by an old aunt.
    Yesterday he brought that old gun to show me;

    It is a S&W DA Frontier made 1881-1913. It is a double action copy of the Smith Schofield in .44/40. All of the frames for this gun were produced prior to 1898. This particular revo was made between 1911-1913, according to the serial #.
    It's in great shape and has a remarkable feel in ones hand.
    Thought you guys might enjoy the pics of this fine old weapon.:flag:

    This S&W is a double action copy of the S&W Schofield Mod. 3. Produced from 1875-1913.
    Carried by such men as Jesse James, Bob Ford( who killed James with it), John Wesley Hardin, Pat Garrett, Theodore Roosevelt, Virgil + Wyatt Earp, and Billy the Kid. The mod. 3 was used by Earp in the gunfight at the OK Corral with the Clanton Gang.

    Interesting tidbit of history, me thinks.:flag:
