I just picked this revolver up from a local antique store for $45. It appears to be in good working condition- Indexes & functions perfectly.

Any idea of the year it was made? The serial number on the grip frame (under the grips) is either 68 or 89- Depending on which way you look at it. I have heard that the round barrel usually means a very early-made gun.

Thanks in advance!
John

They made about 850,000 of them in .32, .38 & .44 between 1883 and 1940.

I've seen quite a few, but none in that good of condition. Most are VERY ratty. They were used and abused for a hundred years. Finding one that stays in once piece when cycled, let alone one with a good bore and good timing, isn't too common. You did good!
