Really Old Classic Mag - Discovering History
I acquired a few markers for some extra parts I needed and am looking to send off the rest. As I was cleaning everything and oiling them down, I came across this:
A couple of things make me think this is really old.
First, it's on a WGP frame.
Next, the valve is marked 00186 and appears to be from back in the day when they soldered on the powertube
Also, the sear is huge, the sear pin in pressed into the rail, and the twist lock assembly is threaded instead of pressed.
Finally, the rail is stamped 186 to match the valve
It had a lvl 7 bolt, so I know it's not all original, but seems pretty close.
So I'm wondering if I have something special or just another old mag. :)
