Martial M12???

I've located a nice(80%+) M12, with factory 20-inch barrel, complete with the 'cuts' for the heat shield. HOWEVER(don't you just love those?)...the barrel assembly doesn't match the receiver. The serial numbers aren't even close to matching, other than both starting with a '1'. The barrel assembly also appears to have been reblued ay some point, as the markings are faint in 1 area. The guy is asking $425. What would YOU pay?

TIA

Sounds like a parts gun that someone wants to look like US issue.

It's a good shooter, but a shooter M12 should run less than that....

I also noticed that the receiver DOES NOT bear the US Ordnance marking(Flaming Bomb). A friend says the receiver was made in 1954.
