S&W eventually found the capability to lengthen their cylinder and topstrap.
There were some No 3 New Models and First Model Double Actions made in .44-40 and a very few in .38-40. The combination did not sell well, there are also some long cylinder .44 Russians, apparently built to use parts on hand for the more popular (in S&W guns) caliber.
