Frame is stamped with a Russian Army acceptance mark, consisting of a Romanov eagle and a cyrillic ‘PK’. PK stands for Prijomnaja Komissija or Acceptance Commission.
The gun has been professionally re-blued. Serial number on the frame is 26381, serial number on the cylinder is 26722. Action is nice and crisp, bore has pitted in several spots, otherwise the bore is quite sharp and shiny. A scarce Russian S&W, chambered in the powerful .44 Russian, of course!
