    Early SAA .44 Rimfire on the Gee Bee

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/826148332

    No connection to Seller, it just caught my Eye.

    No Bids, been run through a time or two now.

    What am I not seeing here?

    I am not in the front of the Class with the SAA, but, at a glance, I am not seeing anything not to like about it.

    Which is to say, it looks just fine to me.

    But, again, these are not something I am familiar enough with, to really say.

    Stocks look to have been sanded along the way, and are a little too narrow now...but, otherwise...

    Do you all see anything wrong with it?

    Edited to say -

    Oh heck, re read the description, it was converted to Center Fire sometime back when.

    Sorry...there no "delete" option for some reason so I can not delete my faux pas here.

    Yes, it has been crudely reconverted from 44 RF without the proper hammer or firing pin. I don't see any number on the cylinder, so it may be replaced? I cannot see the muzzle well enough, but this may not be a 44 RF barrel. I noticed too the "rattle fit" of the one-piece walnut grips. It is not worth the starting bid.

    Elongated firing pin slot. I’d also like to see the barrel rifling. Maybe a 44-40.

    The same seller has another 44RF advertised for over $12K. It has a shortened barrel.
