    Well at least your mate got a nice looking wall hanger. You're right about better to be looking for a complete user. Once the barrel is changer, it's no longer a matching numbers gun. Then to have to find & replace the stock. Could just become a nightmare. Well done on the clean up.

    Even when they are beat up and worn, they have a certain beauty to them.

    Singer B, Well, The receiver looks to have a torch cut hole in it also. Looks like a scrap receiver to me. Nice wall hanger though. Salt Flat

    So why would someone torch this gun? Was this a decommissioning act or??? Thanks for your responses so far.

    Without a doubt. Removing the bolt parts wasn't enough.
