    It is a case of what you see is what you have got.
    A copy of a Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action Frontier made by somebody in Belgium who was not proud enough of his work to put his name or trademark on it.
    Zhuk illustrates that gun and says: "Smith & Wesson type, maker unknown."
    The 1911 Alfa catalog shows several of the sort, listed only: "Revolver, Smith & Wesson System."

    Yours appears to have been reblued and homemade wooden grips fitted.
    I think it is a good $150 gun, certainly not $995.
