Boxed blued S/W 1 1/2 single action revolver RARE RED MOTTLED GRIPS  . Most of these were made in a nickled version , pretty hard to find one having a blued finish and the ultra rare red mottled grips.  And in  the original box.

The red mottled grips are made out of guta percha and the idea was to imitate wooden grips.  The gutta percha procedure was way cheaper, so there the idea. Didn't really work, people didn't like it. so now they are rare and wanted.

Overall 93 to 94 % orig. blue. Perfect griops born on this gun.   Shiney bore, perfect adres and works super.  All the casehardening on the hammer. excellent plus and all correct.
The box is the correct S/W box for this gun and the inside label is fine. Normally the lid is attached to the box, no longer the case. Inside has the correct divider.  Bit of scuffing on the inside but still a very solid box.   Rare as an ensemble. For the speicialised S/W collector.
