Not 44-1/2--it's an early "square cut" 44.  No model no. on front face of rcvr., so must be one of the pre-'96 3-digit models.

I thought 803440056 looked off for a 44 1/2.
Yet 802554814 looks big & strong and yet ID'ed as a 44.

Wink But #803440056 was a DST. How uncommon are they in 44s?

Very.  But probably more of them were installed on 44s, simply because they were in production longer than 44-1/2s.

At least the seller of 803440056 has an excuse--the rcvr. isn't marked with the model no. (because on these 3-digit models, the model no. was marked on the brl).

Some do-gooder will probably inform the seller of the mis-identified 44, causing it to sell for more.

The serial number of 803440056, the 44 with the DST, is 2911, which might just barely still be in the 100 series.  If it was chambered as a 38-55 (on the basis of the extractor being marked?), I'd be interested to know if it has a lugged hammer this early.

I think it is, as the rcvr. is unmarked except for ser. no.  Maybe he knows it's a 38-55 because he broke up the gun--he's also selling many other actions.

802554814 is a 44 1/2. Don't tell him because I am bidding on it. Condition is not as good as I want but the caliber is one I have been looking for. Have had brass for a while and am looking for bullets.

I sure as hell won't (do a favor for a dealer???), but looks like someone has already notified the seller of his mistake with the DST action, as he corrected his listing.

He added a picture of 803440056 with the hammer back and it does indeed have a lug.  Hot damn!

I don't see a lug. A little early for one anyway, isn't it?

It most definitely is within the 100 series. I have two examples of 100 series with serial numbers 2629 and 2745 logged. 

The S.O.B. has broken it up and has the barrel on evilBay.

The hammer picture he sent me directly has no lug.

Well, I'm the do-gooder, but I've offered him half his buy-it-now, and that only if he retrieves the barrel from evilBay and sells it to me as a set.  He wants $250 for the barrel, too. 

GOD but I hate breakers!
