BBL: 7-1/2 inch round
Stock:
Gauge: 45 long Colt
Finish: blue/casehardened
Grips: ivory
Serial Number: 53297
Condition: Custom embellished, with virtually all of the respective custom finishes remaining with a few light handling marks. The grips are slightly oversized, otherwise a couple hairline age cracks and some mild scratches. The ivory has an attractive grain pattern on the slightly oversized grips. Mechanically needs minor work as the action is slightly out of time and is missing full cock notch on hammer.
