The p on the frame behind the mag release was there. But no other marks. It did have a serial number but when I checked it against one of my books it didn't exist. The pistol was not bought. I had my brother explain to him that while the slide checked out as a real rand slide it had been modified, the barrel did not have the 'hc' on its shoulder, the trigger wasn't original (it was adjustable) and the frame was was missing too many distinguishing marks. I guess the man blew a fit and walked out but never tried to explain how it was a real rand or anything.
When I die better bury me deep, two .45s layin' at my feet,
An M16 across my chest, tell Chesty Puller I did my best
