The S&W DA45 revolvers were chambered in 45 ACP as they were

made for the war effort and ammo compatability when the 1911 was in

short supply. If your particular specimen does not have "U.S. ARMY

MODEL 1917" marked on the butt then it was a civilian model.

Depending on condition and such, I have seen them bring anywhere

from $250 to $600. Hope this helps...
