If you paid $1500-1800 you are safe even if refinished. That is about what refinished US&S seem to be saleing for. Does the feedramp have blueing or is it in the white. Pictures of the hammer and just a good left and right profile may help. The hammer pin looks like a bad sign looking at the finish on the pin.
Thanks Vette - I'm delighted to have it.
The feed ramp is white BTW.
Thanks again Sir.
