Thanks Doc. The gun is steel with a brass trigger guard,and it looks just like the E.N.Santa Barbara i bought.It seems to be in pretty good shape. The cylinder has the usual scratch around it from use,but everything looks,and function good.You should have seen the guy's face when I disassembled the gun in front of him.I don't think he had ever seen one opened up before.I told him that I do the same thing with a brand new gun, also.He didn't know what to say. It was precious. Again, thanks Doc. I appreciate the info.
