So I was wondering through one of the local gun shops, and found this thing with a 25% of tag on it. According to the guys at the counter, this was part of an estate sale that included some more old open guns. There was another one behind the counter, but the slide wouldn't travel back enough to lock back and felt like the recoil spring was installed incorrectly, but they wouldn't let me take it apart to check. So I grabbed this one.
I can only find one reference to the WG prefix on the serial number which seems to indicate it's an old smith kit frame. Which would make sense given the Propoint. It's a Canadian frame.
The slide is serrated on top, with the serrations carrying over the comp. The grip safety is very nicely blended and looks to have been pinned at one point.
The barrel is a Nowlin Super 38. The comp appears to be a threaded on cone type.
The slide has a little play in it, but still shot very accurately with store bought ammo.
The scope worked but had a bunch of spots in it, which that turned out to be a lot of grime that cleaned off. The mount has Dawson's arrow thing on it, so I assume it's a Dawson mount?
So is there any way to know anything concrete about this gun? Is this actually an old Baer open gun?
