Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #1781, .31 cal, 4" round barrel with an oxidized bore showing some evident rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver show evidence of a light cleaning long ago and are now mostly a light gray patina with spots of darker brown patina scattered about, remnants of old pitting and light oxidation staining. The barrel address and foliate embellishment on the frame are quite soft but visible. The un-numbered smooth walnut grips remain in about good condition showing a large synthetic filler repair along the full length of the right panel, a smaller repair on the left panel, some scattered dings and handling marks. The arbor and wedge are un-numbered, the arbor showing some older repairs and the remaining serialized parts are matching. Barrel-to-frame fit is rather loose, the nipples show some moderate impact damage from the hammer but the mechanism still functions rather well with good timing and lockup just a little loose. (138752-52) {ANTIQUE} (400/600) SOLD FOR $460.00
