I will post before and after pics,, it will resemble the Incredible Hulk.
Great buy John, The DB's are real good shooters. I wish I could find one in perfect shooting condition, regardless of finish, for a great price.
Cylinder looks like it has not had the same exposures of erosions as the Frame and Barrel.
I do not see any 'pitting', ( maybe my Computer Monitor is not as good as everyone elses, ) but rather lots of small 'dings' like what Keys and Pocket change would do over a long haul of various positions of Pocket Carry.
Wow! Mea culpa on this one. Glad the D-back found a new home.
No kidding, its a tackle box gun for me. Looks to be mechanically sound,,, beat buying a new taurus.
DuraCoat firearm finishes are the route for that one, even if it is for a tackle box. I mean, it is still a Colt.
Normal handling and finish wear.....wow, maybe for something that spent a few years fighting on the eastern front
