There are pictures of 455 triplelocks in Supica/Nahas' Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson. They did have issues with mud from the trenches getting into the nooks and crannies and requested what became the 2nd model.

I've heard that the British government converted many .455s to .45acp for logistics and I've also heard importers modified them for the surplus American market. I like to think it served the allies in both world wars but I have no idea if thats true or false.
