Any one see the listing on Guns International showing a Model 37.
The title says made in 1925 but later it says made in 1939!
The serial number look up shows 1948 mfg. date.
Nicely redone, but the refinisher did not put it back together right!

Listing #101468450. The gun is a very nice restoration but not worth anywhere near the asking price of $999.00. I'm curious,what do you see wrong with the way it's put together?

It is the barrel yoke, it's on backwards!

I've seen that before at a gun shop, the counter guy did not know what I was talking about.
But then he's a expert!

Yes it is. But that makes me wonder if it matters?

AFAIK, it shouldn't matter at all which way the yoke faces except maybe from an aesthetic standpoint.

The gun looks good and doesn't appear refinished to my untrained eye, but I think it would be a hard sell at $999 even if original.

Yes it does matter! Do you want the tire shop putting
your cars wheels on backwards???
Doing things right is a sign of workmanship.
Just like a electrician clocking the screws on wall plates!

As I said, it matters aesthetically but not functionally.

How can one tell that this particular gun was refinished?
