serial #181147, 31 Cal, 6" octagon barrel with a very good bore with pitting its full length. The barrel has toned to a dark brown patina with light pitting and tool marks around the wedge. The loading lever shows a dark brown patina with some light grind marks and pinprick pitting; the lever release shows a modern replacement. The frame shows a dark brown patina with light tool marks. The cylinder is a brown patina with light pinprick pitting and impact marks; the cylinder scene is still visible. The brass triggerguard and backstrap have toned to a goldenrod patina with light traces of original silver-plate in the protected areas; the initials "JS" are etched on the front strap. The one-piece walnut grip rates very good as refinished with a few light dings and scratches from the years. All of the numbers match and the gun will require mechanical attention as the cylinder will not turn. (178158-40) {ANTIQUE} (600/800) SOLD FOR $632.50
