After checking it over the cylinder has no end play that I can measure and it looks like it was hardly fired. There is a little carbon staining on the end of the cylinder and some handling marks but overall it is fantastic. I did get a little green out of the barrel like someone cleaned it and put it away and the bore cleaner worked on a little copper fouling that was in there. The bore in it looks polished and perfect but I can't seem to capture that with my phone. With my maglight shinning at the cylinder end I can see a perfect image reflection of the flash light looking down the muzzle end of the barrel. It has the smoothest single/double action trigger of all my Smith and Wessons, in fact, I'm not sure the stock springs are in this. It's feels like a good gunsmith worked it over. No key lock and locks up like a vault. I always wanted one of these but the ones I would look at were either shot loose or felt like a junk pile when I pulled the trigger. I didn't think anyone would part with a good one until I saw this one. I got it for $699.00 and I think I did pretty good today! I can't wait to shoot it!
