3043P Merwin Hulbert & Co early large frame open top, 7 inch, SAA, 44/40, Fine condition.


3043P Merwin Hulbert & Co NY early scoop flute, open top, 7 inch barrel, cal. 440/40, manuf. 1876-1880s, SN11XXX. These early Merwins are engineering masterpieces for the time period and equipment available at the time. This one is in good mechanical condition. The detent spring works correctly in that the hammer must be pulled back to the loading notch before the release latch in front of trigger guard can be slid forward. This is the loading notch and allows the cylinder to spin freely, it also allows the barrel to slide forward for disassembly and for emptying fired shell casings. It has a good barrel to frame fit, a very small amount of play and it has all matching assembly numbers. The bore has strong rifling, light roughness and is a shiny 8. All the screws are in fine condition and the loading latch is super tight. The barrel stamping with the name and patent dates is sharp and clear as is the left side of the barrel with the H&A address. The caliber stamp on the left side of the frame is also sharp and clear. The metal is smooth without pitting. There is approx.. 75% of the original nickel remaining with the areas of loss from being fired having turned to a plum patina. The trigger guard has good original blue and the hammer has light case colors. The original hard rubber grips are in excellent condition showing very little wear.
These ole Merwins in 44 caliber are getting hard to find as they only made a few thousand of them.
Overall condition very good plus.
