I recently acquired an item that I have never seen pictures of in anyone's collection. It is a pats pending 110 S&W with a 4 link chain. I would just like to share some photos and see if anyone has one it their collection, because it seems like an oddity to me.
None of the S&W product sheets that I have refer to any of the Model 110 handcuffs or show photos of the 110's having more than 2 links. I have product sheets that show these from the 1980's through 2012. In the ones that give detailed descriptions, they list them as:
Model Number 110
Wrist Opening 2.80"
First Notch Inside Perimeter 10.90"
Last Notch Inside Perimeter 8.10"
Tightest Inside Width 2.50"
Weight (ounces) 18.0
Locking Positions 24
Distance Between Cuffs 2.00"
Maximum Overall Length 11.24"
They were not (at least in my material that I have) cataloged as the Model 100 or Model 100EL as having a 4-link chain.
I do know that S&W would make about anything you wanted, if you paid the price they wanted to manufacture them. in their Price Sheets sent to their distributors for instance they list:
