Hi Folks just bought a "possible" with no box, papers or original grips. Action is great as is bore/cylinder condition, carried with usual light wear.
Ser #AIV0210. How can I tell if it's legit ? Serrated front sight, combat trigger and hammer, no sight insert. Bought as a shooter and because first one I've ever seen.

Thanks !

Pete

Howdy Pete,

Sounds like a legit 1 of 660 for Ashland Shooters Supply, Ashland, Ohio, in 1985. I have a few with the AIV serial prefix in my database. The most common prefix is ALU.

That front sight should be the tall, shark fin style, and it should have the dark (black) adjustable rear sight.
