I picked up a new to me DW 44 with a 6" barrel.  When I got it home and checked it out I realized the "rust" I saw on the shroud was the "shipping" grease.  I took the shroud and barrel off and cleaned it well and truly believe it has never been shot.  I haven't disassembled the frame and cleaned it yet but I am looking forward to my next rainy day to do that.  I will probably change out a spring or two to help the trigger action.  

Here are some fair pictures.

Very nice. I see the short hammer tang does not end on Serial number 10,000. Evidently there are at least 142 more.

Sweet! The DW 44's are among my favorite revolvers, and you found a beauty!
