If this guy is being up front, he obviously knows what buyers look for. On an expensive rare piece like this, he would have very good photos of the areas people are concerned with. We don't need a photo of a Rockola magazine or handguard! Too bad because it would probably sell itself regardless of rebuild issues, but if it has been welded or really buggered up, it would not. One of these is probably a $2500 item regardless, right?

If it is original, I think his reserve of $3550 is in the ballpark.
I'm still searching for any info on the unmarked hammer verses a KR marked. A few other items too. I should try and go through old CC newsletters. He mentions it, maybe it was shown or discussed in an article.
I would bet that a lot of possibilities are in the mix since Rockola had so much trouble getting going. I have a Kal Machine hammer (KR) in my NPM but it is the late type. Only hammer swaps in WB were with Underwood in 44, those would be too late. You would have to get this carbine in hand to make any decisions at that price.
