Nope - it is a totally cut-down, humped-up piece of CRAP, and could be the poster child for what NOT to log. The receiver MIGHT have been on an early carbine, but that's it - everything else is bogus. Barrel has been cut, and front sight faked. For those who want to know what to watch for, remember those proportions, that is exactly what a fat-barreled cut-off looks like - remember it.
All that said, thank you very much for the heads-up; haven't browsed GB in awhile.
