I would tend to agree. Yes, barrel markings appeared around 43000 which would still be contemporary with the long wrist (which the gun in question has) but they would be the small ones, not the large as shown - so - the barrel was applied later, and there would seem to be a conflict. I also do not like the (ESA) cartouche, OR the (P) but for different reasons (shape and relative depth/freshness). I believe that gun may have been diddled with.
