Hi Fred, thanks for sending me to those pictures. Mine has definitely been blued at some point, it's not that silvery satin :-( Alas! I don't really think this is a high collectible, but oh well. I think that it is just as you said with the breech block - I think it's okay, but "somebody filed off the tip of the protruding firing pin and left some file marks on the block face." Actually, when I get a chance (not tonight) I'll post some pictures over in that forum, too, so I can show ya'll what I'm talking about. THanks for sharing the info with the new guy!
