So I’m trading a gun to pay off the balance of my 29-2 with some cokes, and with a little left over I’m getting this screwy thing. It is one of the original 5,000 combat magnums. Of these I’ve heard 500 or less were nickel. This is a nickel gun no doubt about it...until you get to the barrel. The barrel is factory blue or reblue or replacement. Some dang thing. It is stamped with the correct serial # on the barrel and the factory stamp is B with a diamond next to the serial number. I honestly don’t know how I feel about it lol. It’s definitely cheaper than an all nickel combat magnum and I suppose I could send it to fords or something (but then we are approaching nickel combat magnum money again). I love the action on my pre 27 is so I wanted an early 19 and it is that lol. It’s one of a kind too I’m pretty sure. Any one have any clue why they may have blued the barrel or replaced it with a blued barrel?
