.36 caiber, 7.375" part octagonal and part round barrel, S/N 3502, barrel number on the right side is 3502, 3502 on the brass frame, brass backstrap and triggerguard. Wood grips.

Condition:  
Barrel and cylinder has been reblued with some deep pitting. Brass frame, backstrap and triggerguard still retains an untouched mustard patina. Grips are very interesting they are original to the gun and have had an old repair by using a piece of brass and brass screws on the inside of the left grip to hold it together, and then a screw was added going through both grips and a threaded washer was use to hold them on the revolver. The original center piece of wood is still on the inside of grips.
