Picked this up from a friend today. He bought several pieces recently and this was one of them...all from the same fellow. Granted, I prefer high condition pistols, but will settle for a little less eye appeal, provided the piece is all original. This one checked out to be totally unaltered, including the barrel, magazine and all small parts. It required a little cleaning to get most of the crud off if it, but turned out to be worth the trouble.
