Muzzle of the Woodsman Match Target
I have been looking for a fine condition 2nd series Match Target (who hasn't) but wondered about the different appearances of the various models I have seen, specifically the crown/muzzle. Not sure if I recall correctly but should the muzzle be in the white and not blued? If so, that tells me the gun has been re-blued. It that a correct assumption. If so, from the many I have seen on Gunbroker, Guns International and other auctions, it seems that I have seen more re-blued pistols than not.
The only experience I have with the Match Target is a 3rd series. Original finish, muzzle is blued. Hope that helps
Thanks, I have a 3rd series Match Target which also has the blued muzzle. Just wondering why the 2nd series was in the white, if the gentleman that stated as such was correct.

I can't think of a good reason for it to be in the white, other than someone monkeying with it after it left the factory.
