A pawn shop owner gave me a .32 revolver with broken top strap that he said might be good for parts.
I hadn't seen this brand before so I figured I'd strip it to see how it was built.
The barrel used a liner so I took a stab at getting the liner out. I tried heating the barrel jacket to expand it and suddenly it all melted away like solder. I guess it was a low temperature ZAMAC casting.
