Thanks for the compliments.

No real story.......a guy answered my ad looking for beat up guns. I got this one and a 10/22(to be fixed up soon).

He said they belonged to his late brother and cats had been spraying them. Luckily he had eliminated any odor prior to me buying them.

Insides and bores look great.....just beat to heck on the outsides

It amazes me how some folks can't or won't take care of their firearms. You did a great job restoring this pistol. Is the 10/22 in equally as bad of shape?

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
