Recently aquired this S&W M1917 "Fitz Special", .45 acp.
The barrel has been shortened to 3", rifling is sharp & smooth, front sight installed, grip frame has been rounded off, hammer bobbed (grooves cut into top of hammer), will shoot single & double action, lanyard ring hole on bottom of the grip frame has been plugged, and the trigger guard cut to a Fitz style. The grips do not appear to be original.
The S&W shoots very nice, shot 26 rounds 230gr FMJ. The sights are well regulated, and the trigger is real smooth. The Smith has some mechanical problems, but that will be addressed later.
Whoever customized this revolver, did a nice job. It also appears to have been done a long time ago.
Per Roy Jinks, the M1917, serial #126xxx, was shipped October, 1918.
Enjoy.

Thru WhiteCoyote the big Fitz legacy lives on! Good move WC! That fits well into your collection of fat snubs.

I'm privileged, and honored to be the curator of this fine revolver.
