Original Colt manufactured barrel from the 1980s that was never installed on a revolver. However, due to long term storage, the nickel finish is in the early stages of corrosion. The result is a smattering of tiny spots where the nickel finish is beginning to peel. Caught at this early stage, the finish can be stripped, and re-polished and blued with fine looking results. Although the barrel is dusty, the bore cleans up to be bright with crisp, sharp rifling.
