Looking for any help identifying this pistol as far as age, where it's from, & guesstimate on value. I can't find any markings on this pistol. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...
I've been a Albert Pujols fan since his rookie season in 2001. I only wish he can play in the American league for a few more years to beat that fake bonds HR record... Albert has been a class act, true mentor, and a great man ever since I started following him. The 813 is my birthday August 13th...I can't tell you anything but, being a Cardinal fan, I have to ask about "Pujols", what does it mean?
The trigger guard looks like a copy of a copy of a copy, those two round holes in the sideplate were for the lock bolts on the gun it originally came from, you can still see the impression of the lock bolt heads. The lock is attached to the stock with modern brass wood screws from a hardware store. Just my humble opinion but I think it's something that came from an "antique" dealer in Afghanistan.The sideplate and trigger guard could just be the result of a rough life--although those two perfectly round holes in the sideplate are a bit odd.
It might be a decorator now, but I believe that a large part of it was a functional firearm(s).I don't believe it's a shooter.........
I have to concur with the assessment of that receiver tang screw. Definitely circa Ace Hardware.
