I can't say where that Ruger was plated but it is not an expert job and I can't say much good about it or put a very high resale value on it.
The screw holes are dished by hard buffing and the screw slots are boogered from a rough screwdriver. The plastic "pearl" grips don't fit, either.
Then there is the sawn off barrel. If Ruger sold any 4 5/8" .44 Magnums, they didn't make it into the usual references.
