    Looks like nickel as I don't see any serrations on the cylinder release - but, not able to see that part very well.

    Here's a hint or two:

    1. Stainless guns usually have serrations/grooves on the thumb portion of the cylinder release.

    2. Serial number dates -- stainless came out in the 82 time frame. Prior to 82 - nickel. After 82 - stainless. But, there are exceptions, especially if a gun has been refinished (i.e., a blue gun redone in nickel)

    After that, look for a sideways "S" inside the ejector rod housing for stainless, or an "N" stamped on the frame under the grips for nickel.

    Congrats, great score. Nickel takes on a warmer color tone than stainless steel. The two on the bottom are nickel.

    My old shooting mate has been snake bit three times - twice by red-bellied blacks and once by an eastern brown. The brownie almost turned his toes up. He is not a snake fan. (Apologies for putting trivia on your thread jsdjeanne<)

    Many thanks, TFlyboy, I do believe it to be an '81, the warmer tones indicate nickle. The King Cobra I got with it is SS. It is very pretty...was told at the range never to fire it...it is collectable. Had to see if it worked, so fired it 6 times. Sweet trigger pull!! Very happy!!
