I have a question that maybe someone can shed some light on. A few years ago I picked up a model 14-4 at a local GS for a price that made me about rip my back pocket off getting my wallet out. The owner had just traded for it and he said that he would let it go cheap because the cylinder and barrel had been re-blued. I didn't care and still don't because I bought it for a shooter. The bluing on the cylinder and barrel are definitely different then the frame, it has a purple hue to it, which might lead one to think it was re-blued because of holster wear. The thing is it appears to be original and the barrel pin does not appear to have been removed. Like I said I really don't care because I bought it for a shooter, I'm just curious. The picture isn't the greatest but let me know what you think.
