Joslyn Army Model Revolver
« on: November 23, 2012, 06:58:11 PM »

Joslyn Army Model Revolver

serial #2970 all matching, .44 caliber, 8" octagon barrel with a bright minty bore. This is a very crisp and honest Joslyn revolver.

This is the late standard model revolver manufactured near the end of production with the iron buttcap reintroduced. The barrel bears

proper markings and retains about 30% original blue finish with the balance bearing an even and smooth gray brown patina. The cylinder

appears much the same as the barrel and the frame has less finish and more patina with a little patchy light pitting on left side. The

triggerguard retains about 80% bright original blue finish, the buttcap has less but also shows original blue blending with a smooth

brown patina. The two piece checkered walnut grips rate excellent with most of their original oil finish and with strong checkering.

Mechanics are very crisp. A fine and completely honest Joslyn revolver - much better than what we normally see
