Poorly nickel plated (originally blued) with incorrect stocks and the tip of the hammer spur broken off, but pre-war 4" HDs are not common and given what I paid for it I can enjoy having it without guilt or regret.
Personally, I would keep it as is.......but use it as a shooter. OR.....it looks like a prime cannidate for a Bowen conversion to .44 Spl.. I think that Micheal Sterns has a Bowen conversion. Perhaps he will chime in to discuss his revolver. :ymapplause: Hopefully, he will include a plethora of pictures and details, for all us "wannabes"!!! Bob
Sometimes it is the beat and abused guns that bring us the most joy. I’ve had guns that were so nice that I never wanted to shoot them or even touch them, and others so worn that I took them with me everywhere and had a lot of fun with them.
