Picked this up for a decent price as I've been looking for some time. The barrel has a pin in the top of the frame appears it has a new or different barrel installed. What do you think is it OK to shoot or a logical explanation for this pin? I know it did not come from the factory that way.

Something just doesn't look right on this one. Besides the pin, the finish on the barrel and the frame look different.

In person the finish is consistant and both frame and barrel and E nickle for sure. I have 3 other E nickle and the finish is not really an issue but who knows. I rarely buy when I can't see in person but the pin was visable in the pictures I saw but overlooked it. My bad.

I don't think that the barrel is pinned.The bottom of the pin appears to be to high to engage the threads of the barrel.Having said that I have no answer as to why the pin is there.Just my observation.D*

maybe aftermarket or homemade scope ring mount kit that was removed, or maybe a cup holder was previously installed there. TIC
