This gun has been in the family for a long while and is still in perfect condition. I would rate it at 95-98% depending... I have started my encore projects and have no time for this one anymore. I had planned on adding a few other pistol barrels but the armor alloy is hard to find these days. This IS NOT stainless steel. Both frame and barrel are Armor alloy. Here is what I could find online regarding this finish and T/C.
"There was a brief period of time whenT/C sold nickel-plated Contenders and barrels. These guns were called the Armor Alloy and Armor Alloy II, and they were made from 1986 to 1990."
This gun has seen maybe ~50 rounds down the barrel but more or less has been a safe queen all these years. I would like to get $700.00 in cash or trade. Please email me at email@example.com for quickest responce.
I have got a # of good trade offers. A guy offered a Springfield Microcompact. I sent 2 replies but have yet to hear back from him. Maybe something is wrong with his PM. Hopefully he will see this. Please keep the trade offers coming.

HELPED A LITTLE NOT MUCH.YOU FAILED TO MENTION YOU HAVE BEEN FILING THE REAR SITE, & MAYBE SHOULD HAVE ADDED A FEW MORE ZEROS TO HOW MUCH ITS BEEN FIRED.I CLEANED IT UP BUT IT MISFIRED 3 OUT OF TEN TIMES WITH FEDERAL HIPOWER 55GR SP.I CLEANED THE BARREL WITH A BRUSH AND BORE CLEANER.RIFLINGS ARE FAINT AT BEST,GROUPED ALL OVER A PAPER PLATE AT 25 YARDS.I BELIEVE THIS IS MY LAST TRASACTION THAT IS NOT FTF.
