NEW.  We purchased this revolver and others like it straight from the imported,EMF (Early & Modern Firearms).  Their resident gunsmith personally did action and trigger jobs on these revolvers, as a favor, before delivery was taken.  There is no extra charge to you, but the value is around $100 per revolver if you sought out an expert to do the same gun smithing.  The Dakota II model has the painted finish, chambered in .45lc with 4 3/4" barrel.
