Really nice work, looking forward to seeing it done.

Yeah...at least by this day and age many NOS car parts are the defective items that were 'put back on the shelf' 50 years ago. Plus they have 50 years of shelf wear and mishandling. But....I'm still glad to get them!

Very impressive project. I'm looking forward to seeing photos at completion.
I wasn't aware that any early hammer guns didn't have the bbl steel marked on the top rib. Perhaps they exist but I didn't note the absence if I have looked at one. I have both a 600 and 1200 SN range lifter and they are both marked as to bbl material. I do have a black hole in that I own both lifters and hammerless PBs but haven't yet bought a TL gun.
Project is a very worthy custom endeavor.
Best Wishes,
Erick

Oh no. All barrels were marked with the steel type.
This one will
Not be only because I do not know what it is. I figure keep it clean with just putting the makers mark on it.

well done Brian.

That is very cool. Was the "check hook" modification difficult?

Please keep up posted to the guns status. Very well done sir.

PS: I like the fishtails also. Great choice.

Check hook modification/installation was not all that bad. The hook is welded on to the lug. Planning and making sure all was in its correct location was important. Other than that, careful file work for cleanup took care of it.

The barrels are all worked down and fitted to the frame where they need to be. Both water table beads are shaped down and the rib extention worked down. The breech end of the barrels and back section of the rib are polished out and are being sent off to Gournet for engraving of the makers mark, breech border and dolls head.

Moving on to the bottom of the frame. It had several dents and areas that were distorted. Especially along the sides on the sculpted beads. The photos below show a pretty good before and after with one side being worked over and the other side not.

High marks for making it a Grade 2 and not the usual over-the-top A-1/Invicible copy.
