The indoor range that I shoot at had 3 or 4 of them (new) for sale last winter when I was in AZ. I sort of liked the finish which looked like it was parkerized. From what I've read on them, they aren't bad little revolvers - certainly not a Colt or a Smith but in their price range, decent. I thought it would make a good knock around gun. What stopped me cold was the price the range was asking for them. This was at the height of the "buy frenzy" and like a lot of places, they were trying to make a fast buck due to supply and demand.

If you could find one at the right price - it could be a fun project to strip and refinish in blue. If you decide to get one and do it over I hope you'll post some photos. I like projects like that!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
