The nickel finish wear and flaking on these old guns tend to make them look worse than what they actually are. Blue always looks better when worn. From the photos it appears to have 30%+ original finish, which includes the blued trigger guard and rear sight. Usually these guns when refinished have those parts nickeled as well. Also, the barrels are usually shorter than the 6" on yours. Value should be if working properly around $150, or more depending on how bad someone might want it.

Gunsmoke, the gun is mostly in working order. The trigger is smooth, the cylinder lock up is tight, however the frame has far too much play to it for me to feel safe attempting to shoot it. I'd really like to get it cleaned up and working, and give it back to its original owner as it was his father's then his brother's. I saw him today and he felt kind of bad about letting it go.

Giving it back would probably be the right thing to do if he regrets letting it go in the first place. It'll cost a lot more than it's worth fixing it up to your liking and I do mean lots more. It's even hard to find anyone that'll even touch it due to it's age. Some things are just best left alone. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
