Well, for me, and other 40+ year collectors, perhaps yes - but, for a novice, I'm not too sure. There are plenty of traps which don't LOOK like bubbas, but still may be.

I think it would be more prudent to simply say that the 1884 sight does not automatically disqualify the gun. It still should be looked at carefully.

There are some VERY handsome mixmasters out there in TD-land.
