I will check the cylinder backplate when i get home from work today. Any chance if i clean up and take better photos of the proof marks on barrel and frame they would help identify more specifically this revolver? I didnt see Braendlin's trademark engraved where i found it on other photos of his .577 revolvers.
Please do not
"clean" it; the proofmarks are the standard Birmingham marks, and will tell you nothing more about the gun.
Don't do any cleaning other than a wipedown with lightly oiled cotton rag.
