Chad, regarding the John Wayne guns, I was looking around and discovered that there are two different model numbers; 6535 as well as 6536. Both seem to be the same but one may be blued stainless. Is that the case? Were there make-up versions of the 6535 too?
Don't know. I only thought there was one model/variation. I see both are listed as running from DUKE00001 to DUKE01250, but then the 650- guns showed up in my research.

The rear of the cylinder and grip frame are stamped S. What do these "S" stampingss denote?
I assume the grips are cherry wood with grain showing. Is that correct?
Looks like maybe three rounds were fired based on the look of the cylinder and there was a little residue in the barrel. Does the factory fire more than one test round and do they run a patch through after?
As it's 1 of only 358 I'm trying to decide whether to shoot it or not. Buffalo Bore makes some interesting +p ammo.
Finally brought the gun home. Sure is a nice six gun. The numbers on the front of the cylinder are actually electro penciled. But smaller and neater than I've seen before.
