No financial interest - looked like a good deal

To who ever is interested in this gun: I would ask the seller if there are any brands or names marked anywhere especially on the barrel - and if there’s no telling who built it, what barrel is in it, if it turns out the lock up is poor or worn out, at least while the buyer is only in it for $450 or so, there’s plenty of room financially to have it rebarreled by a professional and make this gun into a real shooter on a budget.

It only has an Essex Frame and those are a crapshoot.  But it seems to be a functional gun.  It does have a NM slide so that’s a plus.

The slide is not a Colt NM and i can tell you from experience that many different contracts were awarded to make those slides. No telling what this one has but many were dimensionally crap.

Sort of funny that the numbers on the left side of the slide do not match the numbers on the right.

Number on LHS is part number and number on the right is the “CAGE code” ( the maker’s identification number).

Could be a lower end for someone’s .22 conversion.

That was my thought too, and then sell the upper.   I'd look for Gunsmith ID stamps and test fire it first to make sure it wasn't a highly tuned gem.
