45 cal. and shoots good! 39 7/8? barrel, 55? overall @ 8lbs. 9oz. with tapered barrel (no swamp, if original length) I can make out a ?J.? on the barrel, but that is it, would welcome any additional info. others could provide.

Owners Comments:

I believe O. M Dixon, based on a picture in Mr. Brigg's literature, but I need to look at the signature again to try and make it out, very faint.
