Yes, Bill, I did get it, including the pictures. Was having a bit of trouble with my email program - a "disk full" error message, with nothing in the online help file to remedy the situation. So, I am a little bit behind.
Looks like a blend of H&R OM and carbine parts, with a made-up stock.
As I stated in 2006, I'd have some legal concerns. AFAIK, it is against the law to cut a rifle down into a pistol. Now, if it had been done to an original (which is technically not a "firearm") there might be some mitigation, but, since that arm was of post 1898 make, I believe it could become something of a wobbler under the law. And, we all know which way the wobblers are going to drop under the new tyranny. Using logic, of course, there is no real difference between SA and H&R TDs, but since when did that make any difference to the do-gooders?
