It was one of those buy it now deals, I took a quick scan of it on Ebay when I seen it. It was buy it now for $79.95 and shipping was $7.95, when I bought it I thought it probably had a stripped out thread where the rear of the trigger group mounts to it but I lucked out because someone had assmebled the thing wrong with the wrong screws in the wrong place. I did chase the threads because I could see where it had been abused and I ran the screw through a die. I put the valve poppet/stem in some oil I got with a rebuild kit that I used on my first one and let it soak in there until the o rings came in, I bought those from the o ring store with enough to do a few more guns if I wanted for $13.95 so I figure for right around $100 and some elbow grease I managed to get her going good. I was especially happy to have the poppet/stem work on it too because I was kind of skeptical if it would work or not. Oil pretty much took all the surface rust off it pretty good but there were a couple of bad pitting areas but you really can't see them between the barrel and to where they're at. On the tube cap there was a gasket that wasn't even supposed to be there so I took that out and while I had it apart I thought what the heck seeing how it looked out of place from the rest of the gun I did a quick oil blue on it and that turned out good as well and it didn't take long. The hammer mecha was seized up so I cleaned that up and lubed the best I could. Anyway after all was said and done I had a pretty decent looking and shooting pistol. I did a youtube video shooting a target with it.
Here's a couple other pics of it since I blued the tube cap and cleaned her up good getting rid of as much rust as possible, heck this gun sure didn't need re-bluing but just a good cleaning up.
Here's a picture of a stamp on the tube I've never seen on another one, if anyone has seen one before or knows what it's for I'd appreciate any info they might have.
You can also see that I had cleaned up the tube cap but hadn't blued it yet. I'll show an old picture of the tube along with it.
Every o ring on the gun was hard and had to be cracked out of the groves for removal, I polished up all the grooves also.
