BBL: 3 inch solid rib
Gauge: 38 cal
Finish: blue
Grips: hard rubber
Serial Number: 17304
Condition: Very good. The revolver retains 70% original blue finish with loss due to flaking, with some light spotting. The exposed metal has a smooth brown patina. The grips are very good with a couple minor dings and bruises in the otherwise crisp checkering. The action needs work, it doesn't cycle properly. The markings are clear.
