Been looking for this Model for a couple of decades. I found lots of safe queens. Finally found my shooter.
Wow! Looks to be in great shape.
Thank you all for your comments. It is strictly shooter grade. What I did not show is there is no serial number in the ejector rod recess on the barrel. This indicates the barrel has been replaced. If done by the factory, the serial number would have been added. Also, the owner mentioned he succeeded in shooting out the rifling with military ammunition he secretly removed from the base. My guess is the ammunition used corrosive primers and the owner did not know how to clean corrosive properly. The owner said he bought the revolver from a gunsmith. After he shot out the bore, he had the same gunsmith rebarrel it.Great find and looks in excellent shape!
That works! I'm generally not a fan of target grips, even though i have large hands. Cokes being the exception to that rule.The stocks are non relieved diamond targets, but not quite right for my hands. Here it is with a pair of diamond magnas I had laying around and a spare Tyler grip adapter.
What does the gallery think?
There's that guy on the Blue forum- Keith Brown IIRC- Gorgeous, but they're pretty dear too. I like Magnas; all my Mod 1950's came with them, so you're in good company.Never had cokes to try. Not looking for originals, but who makes a decent copy?
