yea I figured but I have been watching it at a shop for a couple of months and I think he wants to dump it, the safety doesn't bother me too much since I wouldn't fire it anyway, how hard would it be to find a replacement part to fix the safety? If I got it for around $200 do you think I would be OK? It also does have the black bakelite handgrips not the wood. Thanks again.
well I waited long enough they took the $200! Here are the pics, all of the other numbers on the firing pin and the slide match and the bore looks great! What is the proper way to release the slide from the hold open position? I can't seem to release it unless I drop the mag.
Thanks for the input guys, I guess the safety is just loose, I took it off and it looks OK is it just worn? Any way to fix it or does it just need to be replaced? Or is it the seer not pushing out far enough? Also, what do you think a fair value would be if I decided to sell it or trade it later on?
The safety can be fixed by bending, but I wouldn't try it. It'll most likely break. Don Schlickman can hook you up with a repro for shooting purposes. It's worth about $400.00. At a small gunshow, you might get $5-600.00. They don't turn up often at smaller shows, and people think they're rare.
