Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #68988, .44 cal, 8'' octagon barrel with a bright very near excellent bore showing some light frosting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 60% mostly original bright blue with a few small areas showing some older reapplied blue, high edge wear, areas thinning to gray-brown patina and some moderate scattered tool marks. The cylinder has mostly toned to gray-brown patina, the hammer is a mottled silvery case-hardened patina and the trigger retains a few hints of fire blue. The triggerguard is a pleasant ocher patina showing a small gap between it and the frame. The smooth walnut grips are pencil-numbered to the gun and remain in very good condition showing mostly worn finish, scattered dings and a soft but visible cartouche on the left panel. The loading lever shows an older brazing repair, the barrel and triggerguard are matching the frame and the cylinder is un-numbered. All of the markings are still quite crisp and clear and the action seems to function well mechanically with timing just a little off on one of the chambers.
