reblued the barrel and cylinder cleaned her up little filing and sanding, havent sighted it in yet. also found 2 1851 brass frames for 100$ for the pair that needed the same tlc PAWN SHOPS!!!!!! they dont want to mess with them or dont know how
they are ALL kit guns.No exposed barrel threads at the rear of the barrel like the early Remingtons. All other '58 repros have exposed threads. Look for faint markings under the barrel above the loading lever. Quite possible a small circle with DGG in it. It's possible it was a kit gun and the markings were lost when it was finished. Yes, ASP kit guns were marked, I have one that was built by someone.
