OK, thanks for the information.

Any other information anyone else observes is appreciated.

I don’t see any of the figure of twist when looking at the pictures of barrels.

1.) Have the barrels been blued?

2.) Is there a good family interesting history about this? You refer to it as “inherited“. Wish I had a family gun like that one.

It looks to me like the gun has taken on a patina, and the word "twist" on the rib of the barrel (along with the other information) is faint (although if you tilt it and put light on it you can read it OK). I wasn't thinking it had been re-blued but not sure.


It belonged to my Dad. I'm not sure when he got it or how long he had it. He was a retired Army officer and Army Aviator and had lots of old guns.
