trying to find more info but have the opportunity to purchase a HS with these barrels....I dont recognize the sight rib though. Look "like" a victor but the rounded tail doesnt seem familiar.  Whoever owned this bunch really liked them, I think he probably put them on his cufflinks too. Also any clue as to the odd looking barrel at the bottom? Need to talk myself into or out of this one.....

other info, gun appears to be a Victor, but not marked as such, just has "Model 107" and "Military" as far as roll markings, also flat top slide as per Victors and no holes for bridge sight as per victors.  Could be a hodge podge of junk, the safety and trigger are gold plated but mag release is not and NO markings on LH side of receiver at all. All the victors I have seen either say "victor" or "the victor" 

be interesting if anyone has some ideas....

Top to bottom what it looks like
1 legit "space barrel" with early Victor rib adapted
2 and 3 appear to be early victor barrels.  Are there weight holes on the bottom a little over 1" apart?  Both have the early victor rib.  3 has the 4.5" rib
4 also a victor barrel with a beatup scope.  I think they called the scope a "phantom"
5 ??????

Agree with those being the taller, early steel Victor ribs.  I have such a Victor.  The hole spacing for the bottom weight is also different for the early barrels at 1.550" versus 0.770". 

Barrel #1 looks like a 6.75" Olympic barrel.  Is it .22 short?

 I believe barrels 2 & 3 have the wider hole spacing.  I cannot tell on #4.  

#5 is grooved for the same scope on #4.  I hope that's an aluminum shroud on #5 or that would be a very heavy pig to hold out there for 10 minutes.

As far as being marked "Victor" or "The Victor", on my 1974 Hamden and 1975 Hamden ML Victors, neither are marked on the frame, only on the barrel.  My 1974 is marked "Military" and Model 107" on the ejection side of the frame with serial number 2283104.

You never know. Friend of a friend of a friend showed up one day with Grampa's 'grease gun'. Sadly. I wasn't there that weekend .....

Curious as to whether the GCA '68 was the first restriction on this. Surely HS had made a ton of barrels before then. So I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

Actually, silencers/suppressors have been regulated and taxed since the Federal Firearms Act of 1938, which was replaced by the Gun Control Act of 1968.
