The grips rate in about Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: The finish on the barrel is slightly better polished than that of the frame or cylinder, suggesting that this revolver may have been re-barreled with a civilian Model of 1909 barrel.

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is shallow. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 60% of its metal finish. There is wear at the muzzle, and pinprick surface erosion on the front 2” of the barrel.

The right side of the receiver shows pinprick surface erosion and coarse polishing marks. The grip frame has a brown patina. The bottom corner of the cylinder latch appears to have broken off.

Overall, this revolver rates in about Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly both single and double action. We did not fire this revolver.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a workhorse revolver from times past and certainly one of the stronger actions before the N frame Smith's. This is a correctly marked U.S. revolver except for the questionable barrel. It is classic design and will be great for WWI re-enactors and shooters alike.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R revolver can be transferred in California.
