Got a good deal--I think--on this one. The gun appears to have been fired very little. Bluing is very good--a very slight amount of holster wear on the left side of the muzzle and a couple of small dings elsewhere. Bore is pretty good--not bright and shiny, but no pitting. The gun is very tight and locks up solidly. I haven't fired it yet but do have some rounds loaded and will have it at the range soon. One thing--the previous owner applied white paint to the small dished out area at the rear of the sight groove, just ahead of the hammer. I suppose the idea was to create a contrast so that the front sight stood out better. How to remove this paint without leaving scratches? The paint is quite hard--a sharpened wood golf tee doesn't faze it--any ideas?
