serial #39419, .44 cal, 8" round barrel with a very good bore showing a few patches of minor pitting and oxidation. This single action Starr revolver remains in very fine condition retaining about 84% original blue on the frame and barrel with some high edge wear, flaking to a pleasing gray and brown, some scattered freckles, scratches and a few pinprick pits. The gripstraps and triggerguard have mostly toned to smooth gray with some streaks of blue, freckling and minor oxidation staining. The cylinder has toned to a rather even mix of blue streaks and grayish brown with some areas worn to gunmetal, a turn line and some scattered pinprick pits. The chambers and nipples remain extremely clean with some blue still present in each chamber. A number of the screws show some very minor slot damage and most of them retain a healthy amount of nice fire temper blue. The hammer and loading lever show some very nice case colors scattered about with the balance toned to a mix of smooth and smoky gray with a bit of minor freckling and oxidation staining. The one-piece smooth walnut grip is mismatched and stamp-numbered to gun 13779. It remains in good overall condition with worn finish, scattered dings, dents and a few small chips. Two inspector cartouches are present and still quite visible. All other serialized parts appear to be matching and everything remains mechanically sound with a strong hammer and very solid timing and lockup. This revolver would make a superb addition to any collection of U.S. martial arms. (138527-36) {ANTIQUE} (2500/4500) SOLD FOR $2,645.00
