Looks like you found a challenge to test your skills this time.  Was kind of wondering is that a screw locating the mag tube?     Good luck    GW

No... that one needs a "whole lotta love"... a little "TLC" simply gets it mounted on the wall...

The screws are holding it to the wall in a local pawn shop.

Looks like it was 'converted' to a model 93.........:lol:

Any background story on it?

Just found in a barn.  It's screwed to the wall in a display.  I didn't even think to check the serial number.  Could have been a gun left from Bonny and Clyde.

Little cold blue and you could shoot it in a match this weekend!

Save it for a gun buy-back program.

Some nice patina on that gauge.

 

Probably they used WD40 on it. :huh:

I'm going to assume the blow-up happened because of the weld job. If he'd only had some duct tape....HA!

I'm dying to know the serial number

 

Why is it worth dying for?  As rusted as it is, it's probably not readable.  I get by this pawn shop about once a year but I'll look if I remember.
