Five round cylinder with a recessed rear face, with matching partial serial number and a knurled ribbed cylinder pin. Checkered spur hammer, with a smooth spur trigger, engraved grip section with checkering on the back, punch-dot backed scrollwork on the sides and a finger ring connecting the spur to the bird's head butt.
