The cylinder has a few small areas of minor silvering between the flutes and there is a small unobtrusive import stamp on the underside of the barrel. The hammer has factory bright metal along the sides and retains most of the original blue while the trigger has some mild fading along the inside of the curve. The checkered hard rubber grips are in excellent condition with some flattening of the points and a small, barely noticeable repaired chip at the heel of the left panel. The lock-up is tight and the action functions flawlessly. Revolvers such as these were very popular with CEF officers as private purchase sidearms (these were not property stamped) and this is an excellent example of a large frame New Service overall.
