BBL: 4 3/4 inch round
Gauge: 41 Long Colt
Grips: hard rubber
Serial Number: 109400
Condition: Good. The revolver has a smooth mottled brownish gray patina with traces of the original blue finish in protected areas. The front sight has been filed a bit on the upper left side edge. The grips are good moderately worn replacements. Each has a different mis-matched number scratched on the inside and the right panel shows heavy wear, with areas of checkering almost smooth. The trigger is a later production replacement. The left panel has crisp checkering. Overall there are a few minor dings and scratches. The markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
