I like the gun but the matching numbered mag looks suspiciously nice. Does anyone else think it may have been renumbered/forced matched? Thanks.

Hi Tim,
On first inspection I thought as you did, but when I took a close look at the magazine base I saw that it had the early and rare 3 lobe crown C/M mark like the one below. I'm a believer!

Honestly, Norm, I usually agree with you, but...altho the number fonts look correct the bottom of the wood base looks scrubbed and with almost no dings - hardly a scratch. The fonts are in perfect shape. That's extraordinary for a 110 year old mag. I agree it's an early mag but it could still be scrubbed. I guess it's the kind of thing that you have to have in hand to determine originality. Then again, maybe I'm just paranoid because of so many fakes.
Regards,
Tim H.

Yes, Tim I see what you're saying the mag does appear crisp and clean but the rest of the pistol looks great. Let's see what it sells for.

Do you think the blueing in some areas looks lighter blue, almost like a cold blue? .... Or is it glare from the lighting?

No pictures of the front grip strap. Rest of the pictures are subpar. Sold AS IS…
I am not a player on this one.

For what it's worth, I also suspect the mag is force matched.
