DEFINITELY a "mixmaster".

(1) ESA was long dead in '82/'83 - stock mark should be SWP/date

(2) Block is dated 1873 (not an 8)

(3) Barrel mark is VP eaglehead P

(4) Lockplate shoild not be dated

(5) Apparently even smaller than a cadet buttplate (NOT SA?)

(6) Muzzle is too small, should be about .730"

I hope it shoots well!!!!!
