    Why do the numbers on the bolt look smaller than most? (pic 49) Looks phosphated, wouldn't that be hard to scrub?

    Florida is a great place for criminals to hang out. They are protected there based on my experience.

    On P38s.. the phosphate finish is pretty hard to reproduce. Usually it's an easy thing to spot whether or not someone's bubba'd the gun. This one.. the finish looks consistent but the the stamps are off. Not trying to legitimize this one by opening up this discussion, but how did they sand off the number and reapply the finish? Did they somehow find a bolt with no serial and then apply it?

    not sure how it was done, but "4's" don't look like that. There are restoration magicians, who work over KY guns apparently.... Here's a MO "4" in phosphate...
