** Post updated to reflect Mfg. date changed to 1980. I bought this gun specifically to refinish. It had been carried a lot, possibly a service revolver, and the grips were (are) rough. It's a good shooter so I did a quick bead blast and re-blue just to make it look a little nicer. There's still pitting I didn't attempt to clean it up at all. Zoom in so you can see any imperfections if you're interested. I stripped the grips and used some tung oil on them but they're still pretty rough so I added a set of Altamont grips to make her pretty. Nice gun fairly and firmly priced at $600.00 shippedFFL to FFL. Thanks for looking.
