I picked this up online. It functions 100% and the finish has seen better days.

It dates to roughly 1925 by serial number and went back to the factory for a rework in November 1929.

The worn Pachmyers are off of it now replaced by a set of faux stags (maybe Catalin) grips that were hanging out in my grip drawer. They even have an old repair that makes them seem even more appropriate for this revolver.

Best,
Charles

I do appreciate a well used gun, and that one looks well used. Those new stocks look great on it.
Here is my 1913 Army Special wearing later wood stocks (the originals would have been hard rubber), just check out that holster wear. It has good lock up after some tuning and is a decent shooter.

That thing is very nearly perfect.
There is nothing that compares to a well used, beat up old working gun.
The whole package, the busted grip panel, the worn out finish; all of it just screams authenticity.
