This gun looks good to me but I am still a novice. I am interested in buying it. Its a 45 with 4 3/4 inch barrel. Gutta Percha Eagle grips.
I believe it falls into year 1887.
looks refinished. How much?

Never buy a gun you'll have to make excuses for later
Buffed and refinished. Looks like someone added a little "case colour" with a torch. Good chance the grips/stocks are replacement, check for a partial SN scratched on the inside. Is it advertised as original or refinished?
My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.
A friend of mine has it for sale and no firm price has been discussed. He does not know if it's been refinished or not. I was concerned about the serial numbers on the trigger guard. I thought it was too nice for original finish.
Agree the frame looks to have been refinished and/or cleaned sometime in it's life.
It appears to have been refinished but a decent job was done. Good looking gun,
