I sourced prices for these off of GA and Gun Broker. Let me know if I'm out of line. I'll pay shipping.

Thanks for looking.

I just went by the description that was on other websites. "Fully shrouded" describes the shell removal rod. The early versions of this gun the rod was "exposed". I'd post a picture of 2 versions but that would probably cause more confusion?

Thanks

Wouldn't a gun with the Hammer not showing be hammerless or shaved hammer gun? I always thought the barrel shroud referred to the rod as the OP stated.

Nice guns by the way. I had a Colt Police Positive and traded it off on something i just had to have at the time. I regreted getting rid of that gun the moment i did it. Live and learn. Up for Jim.

There are barrel shrouds and there are hammer shrouds.

This has a barrel shroud.

The guns where the frame covers the hammer (rather than a separate shroud) - like a S&W Bodyguard - are also sometimes called "hammerless". Obviously a misnomer.
