Does the action function (not shoot)? Did you do the work?

Question:

>Does the action function (not shoot)?<
***********

From what I can see, and unless there's an internal issue...such as cracks, badly deformed lugs and/or excessive headspace...I'd say that the gun is fully functional and able to fire as is.

I still want that milled trigger...:evil:

Would this have been made as a complete gun first, then cutaway afterward; or would it have been cut during initial production of each component?

Chipperman...The serial number on the frame suggests a functioning gun that was modified. No sense in serializing a demo dummy.

My cut away was a finished gun that was then modified in house. You can see it in this pic. Not as cool as the 45 though
