Picked it up today. Serial# says 1971 but frame under grips has 1975 stamped? Blueing is decent as is the case color with trace of rust(for now used some Rem oil but will get Breakaway). Action seems tight. Not as tight as my new Cobra but this is 49 years old. When hammer is in #2 position when I turn the cylinder, on the 6th opening it is slightly sticky(?). Holding it makes me yearn for some horses and saloons. Anyway I surfaced cleaned it and ran patches in cylinder and barrel. Next once I have my ammo(coming weds)will be range. Enjoy.
