This is a Forehand & Wadsworth 44 Bull Dog 5 shot D.A. revolver. The mechanical function is very good and the bore is very good, bright and shiny but does have some minor black powder corrosion. The SN is 17598 and is matching numbers. The hard rubber grips are very good with out chips or damage, only one tiny surface crack on the right upper grip. This also retains over 75% nickel finish.
