The included factory letter lists this revolver as having a 5 inch barrel, blue finish, and checkered walnut magna grips when shipped to Decker Brothers in Mason City, Iowa on August 23, 1946.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 97% plus original blue finish with some minor muzzle wear, a few dings behind the hammer and a cylinder drag line. Nearly all original case colors remain on hammer and trigger. Grips are also excellent with a small ding near the bottom (left panel) and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Box is very fine with storage and handling marks.
