Barrel shortened to "belly gun" length of 3-3/4" during the period, as indicated by wear and coloration that matches the rest of the gun.

Metal parts are a cleaned light gray overall with scattered light pitting. Mechanically good except cylinder a little wobbly when cocked. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
