    Bthomas, Check out the trigger guard and lower tang. If they are cast together in one piece it is more than likely a trainer. Also use a bore light and see if there is rifling present. If no rifling...

    Warpig, Nice work-- I am wondering what glue you are using? I've tried several types and like Elmers Max wood glue the best. It will take a stain and is very strong. What do you think? Salt flat
