Thanks for the info - THAT is where I saw it. Didn't pay it a great deal of attention, but am surprised I had not logged it. I suspect it MAY be, to some degree, an assembly of parts. The 3-notch tumbler is NOT wrong, and the firing pin is no big deal. What disturbs me is the later "heavy" swivel bar, and some patina anomalies. That indicates, to me at least, some post-use manipulation. Solely from the pictures, I do not particularly "like" the front sight, especially the rear view, but that could just be the photography. Mr. Rush is well-qualified to judge TD parts.
