Overall length 5.3/4″.  Barrel 2.1/4″. In .30 cal’ Rimfire And Nickel finish.  Two piece Rosewood grips in their original varnish finish. The revolver is in its original Nickel finish with No losses on the cylinder – its perfect. The frame suffers from a tiny amount of pin-prick corrosion with the worst patch at the muzzle very near to the half round fore sight blade.

The cylinder pin, trigger and hammer are all nitra-blued and retain  a great deal of finish. The bore is excellent and the action sound.
