This is one of only 1,000 of this variation of the New Service model revolver produced. The accompanying factory letter lists this revolver with a 5 1/2 inch barrel in .45 ACP and parkerized finish (this is factory error as the blue finish is most certainly factory original) when it was shipped to Shapleigh Hardware Co., St. Louis, MO on July 28, 1932. This was a 500 gun shipment. It has standard markings and is fitted with blade and frame notch sights, checkered hammer, smooth trigger, and checkered walnut grips with Colt medallions.
Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original blue finish with only the slightest handling evidence and a very faint cylinder drag line. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
