Got busy and just now got back to the computer. The pistol has had mainly .38 run through it and was horribly filthy. I was surprised that a gun owned by a man who just put his retirement papers in with the US army would let a weapon get like that. I know my dad wouldn't have. Lock-up and rotation were just right, nice tight cylinder, good rifling and intact grips. The ejector was a bear to push out, it was so fouled up. I've got it so it works fine now, but am still getting some gunk out of it evidenced by the goo on the rod of the evector.
I bought some .38 and .357 rounds right after I bought it. I met the guy at a Walmart parking lot just outside of Ft. Riley, KS. Hopefully tomorrow I can celebrate 9/11 by firing off some rounds for my lost brothers.
