All matching numbers including the wedge. Nice functioning action. Good traces of cylinder scene still visible.

This is a very scarce gun with only about 2700 of these Second Models manufactured. A lot less of this Model than the 1st and 3rd Models. The grips appear to be an excellent replacement. Nice fitting. Overall metal is a light nickel color with scattered light pits. This is still an attractive desirable old Colt.
