Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #1933, .36 cal, 4" octagon barrel with a fair bore showing moderate oxidation, light pitting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver are mostly a mottled dark gray patina showing some scattered dings, spots of light pitting and freckling. The loading lever assembly and retainer are later replacements and mostly bright overall with a broken screw holding in the plunger and a brass screw retaining the entire assembly. The barrel address is still very clear and the cylinder scenes very soft but visible upon close inspection. The brass backstrap and triggerguard are a lovely ocher patina with a number of moderate dings on the butt, some areas of strong silver plate in the more protected areas and light staining throughout. The smooth one-piece walnut grip remains in very good condition as refinished long ago with repaired chips at the toe on both sides, some light dings, dents and handling marks; any number on the grip is no longer legible. No number is visible on the cylinder but the remaining numbered parts are all matching including the wedge. The mechanism functions very well with solid timing and lockup.
