    I picked up this old single six recently. Has the serial number 882, but has lightwieght gripframe and chrome steel cylinder. The man I bought from said his dad had bought it new for his mom. My modest research shows the lightweight was produced later than 54. Could he haver ordered it this way, or was this all something done afterwards.

    Welcome to the website!! The Single-Six that you picture is not a ""Lightweight"". Your 3-digit Single-Six appears to have a normal steel cylinder frame with the standard aluminum alloy grip frame. The grip frame's original blue/black anodizing has been polished off to reveal the bare aluminum alloy. The early ""Lightweight"" had an aluminum alloy cylinder frame, alloy grip frame and alloy steel sleeved alloy cylinder. Some of the later Lightweights had a steel cylinder but all had alloy cylinder frames.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the help Bill. So I looked at the gun a little closer and I can see in the crease of the trigger guard where it was not all polished off. And yes the cylinder is polished, the flutes are actually black. Nice looking gun.
