    That's purdy. My little CA Off Duty is a real plain Jane but she shoots great.

    BTW, if you plan on carrying her you might want to get the bobbed DAO hammer too. Takes about 3 mins to swap them out.

    I do carry it IWB. The hammer hasn't presented a problem - yet...

    Not that I ever had occasion to draw it under stress, mind you.

    Great little revolvers. I picked up the same one a few months back and with the polished finish I couldn't resist but to add a set of pearl grips. I'm up to five Charter Arms revolvers now and not a bad one in the bunch.

    Hey, FWIW, I like the high polish finishes! Seems Nickel plating is a thing of the past nowadays, with all the matte stainless steel revolver frames, etc.

    Plating metals usually involves hazardous waste (RCRA) concerns. $. Polishing is just takes a wheel and some time. I know which I'd pick if I were running a shop.

    Yeah, I know the difference - and I could polish any of my matte SS frames to a high gloss if I choose. Just thinking back to the “good old days” of the ‘60s - ‘70s when you mostly had blued and nickel as the default production finishes. And, as I understand, if you mar a nickel coated frame the entire frame required replacing.
