        That is inspiring. Missing a no revision and the -2 side marked. Very neat to see them all together

                  Brian,
                  When I was gathering 14 parts to build my various projects I came across a Garand hammer with a hole in it. Just passed it on to a M1 friend for his parts box and didn't give a thought to it. A lot of stuff out there and a lot to learn. Need to do one's home work or have good resources. Thanks again for posting pics.

                    Super cool! A hammer was the very first MS part that I ever got to own/handle.

                    Are those all punch prick hardness tests on the inside? Some parts really got the treatment, ...

                      Hi Jeff,
                      Yes, Sir.....I believe they are all hardness punch marks on the hammer. That pinion you show certainly got some testing, too, I suppose.
                      Thanks for stopping by and chiming in!

                        You bet.

                        Here is another of mine. I am fairly certain that is original finish. Maybe Bob will chime in - he ended up with it.

                            That's one heck of a nice hammer you had there. Are there other MS parts in the group?
                            Thanks for posting that photo.....very cool!!

                          No other Model Shop parts, but an early, no-pad trigger housing that I got from the Danish returns.



                          I put all my earliest parts on one group.
