    I find this fascinating, that every firearm coming into the UK from the US would need to be Proofed before sale. Reminds me of the California Law that "handgun model has passed firing, safety, and...

    After the auction house got the quote from the Gunsmith I was given that amount to handle the repair. Since they decided to go that route I will be handling the repair myself.

    You wouldn't have found it in a 1933 catalog, the 521T superseded the 521 TL "Junor Special" and wasn't produced until after mid-1957. The receivers are all ruff like that except on higher-end 500...
