    That's a good looking revolver. Hard to beat SS with real wood.

    Here's my older Interarms one. Very good shooter. Mine did have a few burrs on the cylinder that I polished off but overall a nice gun.

    Rex,

    Its hard to tell but it appears your serial no. starts with a J like mine does. Do you have any idea the age of your gun? I am trying to determine the age of mine. Your S/N looks like J01XXXX, mine is J44XXXX. I would appreciate it if you could expand on this any.

    Thanks
