Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #208, .31 cal, 4" octagon barrel with a fair-good bore showing moderate oxidation and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of the barrel retain perhaps 75% original bright blue with high edge wear, freckling, a few small dings and some flaking to brownish gray. The barrel markings are still crisp and clear. The loading lever is mostly gray patina and the frame and cylinder are a pleasing mix of smooth gray and gunmetal with very fine pinprick pitting, freckling and a couple of tool marks on the right side. The acid etched foliate pattern on the cylinder is still quite clear obscured in spots by some old oxidation stains. The smaller parts retain some traces of fire blue shining through and the hammer shows some remaining case-hardened colors, what appears to be some old lightly flaking nickel finish on its top surface and some minor casting flaws on the left side. The black checkered hard rubber grips are both stamp-numbered to the gun and rate near excellent with a tiny chip at the heel of the right panel, a few tiny dings and overall mild discoloration. The barrel is matching the frame, the cylinder appears to be un-numbered and the original silver cone front sight is intact. The mechanism functions very well with excellent timing and lockup, although there is no half cock. Overall a very fine condition revolver that would make an excellent addition to any collection.
