Wanted one of these for a long time but sellers always thought they were made of gold or something. Saw this one about 3 years ago at a local show tagged at $100. Seller told me the action was frozen so he priced it as a fixer upper.
I took it home and poured some solvent through it and washed out all the congealed grease. After that it worked just fine. goodjob01
Bought dies and brass and loaded some 125 grain round nose lead .357 bullets to about 800 FPS. Even with the undersized bullets it shot surprisingly well putting all six into palm-sized cluster centered in the black at 15 yards.
