    A good friend bought one today at our lgs for $400. It's an early flat latch and was about 95% and looked to be unfired. It came with a hand tooled holster too. I thought it had a 3" barrel, but when measured it was 3 1/2" which I have never seen before. All in all a very nice revolver in a desirable ctg.

    I don't know why they made the WRM with 3.5" barrel and the LR with 4", but that was standard for the Kit Guns.
    Good catch.

    I got mine a few years back after giving up on the disaster that was my Model 351. It's a great little gun.

    Have searched for one for years. Already have a 4" .22 lr Kit Gun, mdl 34 purchased new in 1976. As fine a revolver as you will ever shoot. Probably have tens of thousands of rounds through it and it looks new.

    Carried it many years on our ranch in Terrell County west Texas. Can decapitate a rattlesnake at 20 feet easily.

    Shoot safely Jim
