                        Smith & Wesson Model 24-3 “Lew Horton Combat” -- .44 Special caliber, 3 ½” barrel, original bright blue finish with smooth Goncalo Alves combat grips. This very fine and scarce “snub nose” N-frame is in excellent condition in the original Bangor Punta blue box with the factory papers and tool-kit. The original combat grips have an excellent grain pattern and figure with a few very minor handling marks. One of the original “.44 Combat’s” manufactured for Lew Horton Distributors in 1984. The bore and cylinder chambers are mint and the mechanical working order appears to be correct and proper in every respect. This gun will be incredibly difficult to upgrade in any way, be sure to add it to your collection!! Please see the numerous photos for all details and close-up views of the finish condition.
