Hi Fausto,

I am no expert, but my guess is "no".  The factory did not spend the time to embellish the serial numbers to my knowledge. Or proof stamps. Collectors in the years have done that.  I have a nice Navy that I want to clean out the yellow goo and see what is under it.  I am thinking a toothpick will do the trick.  Enjoy your example and we will see what others say about your question.

Don't mean to be rude, but those photos need to be resized.  They open in pretty small format.  Hope you don't mind.  I enlarged your photos.

Welcome to the forum.  What type of license do you need over there?   Are you close to Epswitch?

Thank you Alan for the follow-up.   I am going back to staring at those photos again.  I just cannot figure out that dark black/brown spot within the frame.  That has me confounded.  You know.    It may be oil that has settled with age and turned into a varnish.  That has got to be why it has discoloration.  It now strikes me as old built up oil.  I guess I should have figured that out sooner. 

Have a great day and good hunting to you too.

Model HSC Pistol / HSc Cutout
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:12:35 AM »
Rock Island Auction house has a HSc cutout going up on the auction block soon.  Has anyone stared at that photo for an extended period of time?   I have and I pose a question.  If this is a correct, factory built, no serial number cutout, then what is that heat signature doing on the inside at the front of the trigger guard.  Why is that heat signature shaped the way it is shaped?   Why is there fading in the signature as it becomes further removed from the chamber?   It strikes me as a non-typical location for a obvious metal discoloration to be on an example in the white.  Perhaps this is just surface rust, but to me it looks different.  Perhaps there was a hardening process going on at that location, that would explain it.   I am just a HSc  devotee with a lot to learn, and I must admit that I cannot figure this cutout coming from the factory.  There is another piece of this gun that has me stumped also, but that is for a different time. (after someone spends $9,000 on it)   Thank you to the forum for letting me post my interest.

Jim
