Congratulations on your purchase, it looks as though you did really well there. Any plans on taking it out to the range in the near future?

Wow, that's pretty sharp! Is it chrome or stainless? I'm not sure, would have to research factory chrome 85s, but you can send any gun to a chroming shop. :D

Oh, you'll like the 3" spout. I have a Rossi with one and a 66 and it really helps the sight radius which helps accuracy and sight acquisition speed. Little harder to pocket, though. Besides, I just think a 3" tube on the small frame looks more balanced. :D

Nice find. It might be an aftermarket chrome job.

i dont think it would be aftermarket? the top is a flat finish so there isnt a glare , and all internal are a flat stainless finish? i wonder if it wasnt a small run of these back when?

Glad to hear it shoots just as well as it looks. I didn't expect any differently. :D
