serial #3827, .42 Cup-fire, 5 1/2'' ribbed octagon barrel with a fair-good bore showing some spots of moderate pitting but good rifling. The barrel, cylinder and hammer of this third model revolver are mostly a light gray patina showing some scattered pinprick pitting and small dings. The barrel address, patent marking on the cylinder and Merwin & Bray marking on the left side barrel are still quite visible with some minor softening while the brass frame is a pleasant light ocher patina showing a few small dings and minor tarnishing. The smooth rosewood grips remain in very good condition showing a small chip and tiny crack at the base of both panels, small dings, scratches and the right panel is stamp-numbered to the gun. The hammer functions crisply and timing and lockup are solid. A very fine example of these interesting front-loading revolvers. (138737-11) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (700/900) Sold For 632.50
