This revolver does not have the manual warning on the barrel. It features a wide serrated hammer spur; blued finish; 7-1/2" barrel; and walnut grip panels with silver-colored Ruger eagle medallions. Other features include a 6-round capacity, non-fluted 44 Magnum cylinder; a rear sight click-adjustable for windage and elevation, and a Patridge-type front sight mounted on a ramp.
