The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 75% original nickel finish with most of the loss due to flaking along the cylinder, right side frame, backstrap and loading lever toning to a dark gray-brown patina also with minor pinprick pitting and some scattered moderate dings along the edges. The hammer and trigger are mostly a dark gray patina, the hammer nose showing a few moderate dings, and the barrel markings remain crisp and clear. The smooth walnut grips are pencil-numbered to the gun and remain in very good plus condition showing mostly worn finish and some scattered light dings. The barrel and triggerguard are matching the frame and the cylinder and back plate are matching each other by assembly number. The action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up. A solid example of these handsome cartridge-era Remington revolvers.These were used by Sheriffs of the old West and city Police from the late 1860'sup to 1890's. A very good gun overall. When buying a gun always have it examined by a competent gunsmith before shooting. To buy a gun from me you must get a direct email for me, with details, and shipping cost. We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. I try to keep guns affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness, or nose bleed, with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you attempt to buy, you must still contact us for details . Best to email to buy. Sometimes a local person can stop buy and purchase before the gun is removed. Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. Otherwise many older or black powder guns ship to your door. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. I’m easy to get along with. Thank You.
