    Whatever it is, that's a cool logo. The collector in me would want it just for that.

    The machining striations in the cylinder flutes and cattle-like logo indicate a mid to late 1960's manufactured gun.

    Taurus & Rossi were way ahead of S&W, Colt & Ruger's time in making 3" barreled models of different calibers available without a custom order.

    Not on these. Unless you're skilled in metal fabrication as well, because it would require cutting, re-shaping, & welding the frame.

    I remember someone posting a chart or list that showed the various logos with the date ranges. Can't remember who posted it and the search function isn't helping. Would like to see it again.
