Hey, you know the saying around here...."if there aren't any pictures, it never happened". My ROA is probably as old as yours, but shows it's age some. There is a thread here where I posted a picture, believe it's on the second page here. I'll have to look up the "born on" date.

You said SS? The barrel & ramming parts look blued? To me looks like someone removed the bluing & polished the frame & cylinder.

Nope, I never said mine was Stainless. The bluing is just worn off the frame, was like that when I got it.

Sorry about that. I guess I had a Senior moment & didn`t look at the name. LOL

Still right nice guns. I'd like to grab one up but the price is so high on them now that it's not worth it. Sometime they show up in places when your not looking for them and at prices that's almost a steal. (^h
If it's not broke don't try fixin it.
