Be glad you did and call Doug Richardson and SAVE!!!!
(or, for $100 more you can get an excellent condition 1928 kit from Landies at Ohio Ord. It comes with everything but the upper reciever.)

|John Jr, correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a colt barrel, not a 1928 Savage barrel.|
Okay. If the barrel came off of a TSMG that colt assembled in the early twenties, then the barrel was built by Remington. Lyman built the sight. So we don't have a colt part yet.
Plus if this barrel is not off of the first 1,000 guns thus meaning that the SN is not engraved onto face of the barrel where it screws into the upper, then we really don't know who built it. Colt parts are not marked in any way, and neither are reproductions.
Just one of the MANY reasons I would never collect colt TSMG stuff.

|Only Colt M-16 stuff? They ain't marked either.|
A trend perhaps???

|IF this was a modified WW2 Barrel, than a Mark would be evident, UNLESS the mark disappeared through someone's handiwork.|
This wouldn't seem any less possible than someone failing to mark repro parts. JMHO...

And what exactly is your point? You know John, you have developed quite an infamous reputation for jumping in with your snide remarks...Not a day goes by, without seeing this type of behavior from you...I am literally shocked, as I am disappointed. Absolutely NO shame with your intrusive actions. I'm truly appalled...
Now with that being said, my point is no one would able to tell if this is indeed an original Colt Barrel, or a later reworked one. No matter if there had been a mark or not. For the dedicated Forger, there are ways around almost anything..Not that I wanted to start the entire Marking Debate again...

What did the seller say to you after you informed him that the merchandise he was selling wasn't kosher? It seems he just re listed it with no clarification or correction. Was the Lyman mount also not Colt blue?
