Just another one that's different.
Right now it's disabled until I can find another main frame.  :'(

It's a Spesco Corp stamped barrel, other than that, it's just another Italian reproduction revolver dated 1970 (XXVI). Furthermore it's in pieces lacking a nice frame. If I put the cylinder on the existing (original) frame and add the barrel then push the cylinder back until it hits the frame (pushing the hand back) the barrel/cylinder gap is about 0.040" or so.  :o Additionally, the caps (if there were some installed) would hit the frame, thus a 4 shooter, meaning four shots go at once  :'( while the two on the right, in the reloading notch area, do nothing.  :)

I have a bid on 'bay for another brass frame, just so's it can be put back together.

Ahh..somebody never heard you don't full-charge a brasser. There is a guy on GB that lists a new brass frame almost every week. He buys new guns and parts 'em out, I believe. I bought one for my kid to fix his shot-loose brasser. The frame was made in 2013 and never fired.
