    $150 is what they’re asking. The cylinder does look like its been refinished but I couldn’t tell what it was refinished with.

    I think from the pics
    Someone years ago refinished it with some kind of coating
    Could be duracoat which can be bought in spray can form...
    and it could be cerakote but that is newer stuff and very hard to remove...
    almost like bed coating
    The best way to remove that stuff is chemically ...
    not by grinding it off
    Who ever recently got it decided they wanted to remove it
    They just went about it the wrong way
    God Bless,John
    Now it makes more sense to the condition of it

    You should buy it for $150. And then flip it to me for $500. …. I think a lot of those dremel scratches can be buffed out for sure. And it does look like a coating of some kind is on the cylinder. This would be super fun to clean up and bring back to life. All serial #'s are legible? How does the bore look? Make it happen!

    I suppose the price is basically alright, but its still a time suck for something that cant be 'fixed' in a meaningful way. I wouldn't buy it.

    That is not a coating on the cylinder. It is where the corrosion has eaten away the surface metal. An acidic concoction can cause this. I have seen it many times. The problem is that you have to remove a lot of metal to make it go away. You can usually spin a barrel and cylinder in a lathe to even things out but with as much damage as I see you would remove all the markings and the cylinder would get much smaller. Trying to save this one with any amount of looks remaining is not very feasible. It can be repaired to shoot and then the thicker the coating you apply the more you can hide. For 150 it may be a fun project.

    I wish I could find a project like that for $150. When I find a relic they want a grand! That's why I don't have one. Buy it and have some fun. Take your time and make a plan before jumping into any refinish work. Or of course pass it on to me and make a new best friend along the way.
