Is it a 38/44 Heavy Duty?

Michael Bane said...

Nice try, Brian, but — BUUUUUZZZZ!!! — wrong answer!

I like "Billy," though — could be male , female or poodle.


Patrick Sweeney said...

Hmm, looks like a .38/40 Target, humpback hammer, five-screw, with a 27/28 barrel screwed into it.

S&W .38/44 Outdoorsman

Michael: it looks to me you've got a pre-war commercial frame (not a military frame) that has been milled and fitted with a relatively modern or well-post-war adjustable sight. The barrel is not a stock Model 27 barrel because it meets the frame exactly at the top front edge, so either the barrel has been milled down(shaved?)or someone found a pre-war .38/44 Outdoorsman barrel. If you hadn't of given the hint it was in .38 Special I would have guessed it was a 'special' .44 Special from Hamilton Bowen, but then I figure the whole thing is the product of either Hamilton or Clements. How close did I come?
All The Best,
Frank W. James

The .38 Special was introduced in 1899 as an improvement over the .38 Long Colt which, as a military service cartridge, was found to have inadequate stopping power against the wooden shields of charging Moros during the Philippine-American War!!22dd

The reason mnbgqhj why the Oakley Frogskins can block the UV ray is that the lenses are coated with a layer of special film. Such Oakley Frogskin can block and absorb the UV ray as well as some visible light Cheap Oakley Sunglasses at the same time, which will reduce the transmittance of the lens. Therefore, the superior-quality Oakley Jawbone have strong resistance to the UV ray. Moreover, the coating on the lens is relatively hard and not easy to be abraded. As for how to determine whether a pair of cheap wholesale Oakley Jawbones is with UV protection function.
