new service 45
thanks Bart. It's at a Pawn Shop, so I'm going on my feeble memory, The Horsey(lol) does look a little faint, the stamping on the top of barrel(patent etc) is ok on left side, but it looks like letters continued past the end of barrel on right side. I believe it had a 6 digit ser. no. Shouldn't the front sight set back about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from front of barrel? It's 45 long colt. I think barrel was shortened, a new trench cut for the front sight, then Nickel Plated. Can a proper barrel be obtained and installed without too much difficulty?
