The fluted and notched 6 shot Cylinder, retains a very high % of a smooth, blue finish. The Matching serial Numbers are clearly stamped to the trigger guard mount. and to the lower grip frame. The is a high % of blue in this area. Action and indexation to all 6 cylinder chambers is sound and strong. There are very attractive and desirable Pearl grips, carved to the RHS with a Snake and Eagle Motif, and plain to the LHS. This was often the case and probably indicated use in a RHS placed holster, so the smooth side did not snag the leather. These grips are in superb condition. There is a standard iron, classic shaped foresight, used in conjunction with a “V” notch to the top frame strap. There are 2 clear, small “notches” finely engraved to the lower aspect of the back strap. Are they indicative of this revolver’s history??

I have dealt in Antique Arms and Armour for about 35 years, and my interest began as a school boy during the 2nd WW.
After leaving my home town of Leicester, I went to University, and qualified as a Dental Surgeon at Guys Hospital in 1961 .
My main interests are British and North American Arms of the 18th, 19th,and early 20th Century, plus a few Continental items.
It was 14 years ago that I retired from Dentistry. However, I have continued running my Antiques business, initially while still in practice, and now make most of my sales online, but still exhibit at a number of specialized Antique Arms and Militaria Fairs eg .. Bisley, Bristol, and also at the IACF Fairs, at Ardingly, Sussex.
