Well I finished doing a few things with the rib in time to do a basic strip! As expected, it's pretty filthy. I plan on getting into the rest of the frame tomorrow evening.

Enjoy:

I think you did pretty good.

No pitting at all. It is still very clean with lots of life. I spent few hours going over the naked frame and slide last evening. I think it cleaned up pretty good!

Nice find Johnny Conroe. I never seem to have the same luck with my local pawn shops.

Well guys, that was one of the dirtiest pistols I have ever seen. Finally finished going through the remaining internals and putting it all back together. Overall I'm very happy with the weapon and like the WW1/WW2 blend. The Augusta Arsenal rebuild adds a nice touch too. The funny thing is, I have driven buy this pawn shop probably a million times in my life and never stopped to look. But the one time I do is when I stumble across a decent pistol worth snagging. Maybe I should go buy a Powerball ticket?

Anyway, here is the finished product. Debating on changing the grips to WW1 in the future. Thanks again for y'alls help and approval. Cheers.

First off OP that's a good price at what you paid. It was way over priced, but I'm glad to see they were realistic.

What's the consensus on the mainspring housing? I have to admit I'm certainly no expert, but the smooth sided mainspring housing threw me off when I first looked at the pictures. I'll admit the frame and mainspring housing finish appear to match, which would correlate with the rebuild markings.

I obviously have no way to prove this, but I think the mainspring housing is original to the frame. It's definitely a Type I with the smooth texture and beveled bottom rear edge. Type I's were used up to about the 700,000 range.
