serial #28034, 9mm Japanese Revolver, 4 3/4'' barrel with a mostly bright very good plus bore showing some minor frosting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 85% arsenal-reapplied dull blue showing some high edge wear, a few spots toning to gray-brown patina, some light pitting and thinning along the sides of the barrel, heavier on the left side. There are some moderate tool marks near the sideplate where someone has tried to disassemble the revolver incorrectly. The checkered Asian hardwood grips remain in very good plus to near excellent condition showing a scratch on the left panel and some smaller scattered handling marks. The left panel and most of the parts are matching the frame by serial number; the cylinder and barrel appear to be matching each other by a separate assembly number. The lanyard ring is intact, barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action functions well with solid timing and lockup just a little loose. A fine example likely arsenal-refurbished prior to World War Two. (138937-92) {C&R} [Cletus Klein Collection] (400/600) Sold For 517.50
