Manufactured on an Army contract, with the "stacked cannonball" arsenal marking on the chamber region. Block base dovetailed "inverted V" front and tangent rear sights. The back strap is smooth, with a straw finished trigger, serrated cocking knob, "one piece" style frame, checkered grips, and a nickeled alloy base magazine numbered "6682".

Fine, with 60% of the arsenal refurbished blue finish, showing areas of pitting, sections of gray and brown patina, edge wear and mild handling marks. The grips are good, with dents and scuffs overall, plus traces of what may have been a Japanese "3" painted on the right panel. Mechanically fine.
