Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #34697, .44 cal, 8'' octagon barrel with a very good bore showing some scattered light pitting and strong rifling. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain perhaps 45-50% original bright blue flaking to gray-brown patina throughout, cylinder mostly toned to gray patina, scattered light dings and spots of light pitting. The hammer shows some smoky remnants of case-hardened colors throughout with scattered light oxidation staining while the triggerguard is a pale ocher patina. The smooth walnut grips are un-numbered replacements slightly more flared out at the base, a little shy at the top and otherwise in very good plus condition showing some light handling marks. The cylinder is mismatched numbered ''4993'' and a few screws are replacements but the barrel and triggerguard are matching the frame and the silver cone front sight is intact. The action is functional but will require mechanical attention as the cylinder advances backwards as the hammer falls. Still a solid example with some nice remaining original finish. (139010-159) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Jess P. Lewis Collection] (1000/1500) Sold For 1035.00
