    Hi Gregg ,I had several Confederate weapons in the same auction at James D. Julia which I dropped off in Maine. I saw this gun and found the case coloring attractive but too ” tarty” for an original Parker job. As I recall a very nice handling gun though. Regards, Andy

    Yeah it looks like a nice shooter. Expensive, though…

    Thanks for the comment.
