      I knew Fred fairly well.
      He was an old school German machinist.
      He died July 1986
      He built approx. 250 of the short cylinder guns.
      The gun you have , which has the Beltsville marking was a donated award gun. It was a prize to one of the PPC Regional participants. The Beltsville matches were held at the US Secret Service training center in Beltsville, and was one of the largest matches next to the Nationals. After the Waco incident and remarks from the NRA president, referencing "jack booted thugs" the NRA activities were no longer welcome at federal facilities.
      Fred was a member of the American Pistolsmith Guild.
      After his death I purchased much of the S&W parts inventory and some of his machinery, which is still in use today.
      Hope this gives you some insight regarding your revolver.
