Determining whether I have a USA-made USFA or a parts gun

(1/5) > >>

Hi everyone, I've read yahoody's and others' very helpful posts on this subject, but I'm still not sure what I have here. (I tried to post this with photos, but the forum software rejected my post as spam. I'll try posting the photos in subsequent posts.)

I picked up a 223xx serial number USFA for a low price, so I'm expecting it will be a parts gun, but I figured I would ask the experts just to be sure. I think it has a USA-made frame, given the appearance of the loading gate, but the serial number makes me think it's very unlikely to be fully USA-made.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you!

The hammer looks USA to me since it appears to be cut checkering and it has a cone firing pin. Other parts we need to see would be the cylinder flutes and the other side of the ejector rod. Hopefully others more knowledgeable than me will come along shortly.

Thank you! I will take more photos tomorrow when I have good lighting.

Need to see the cam section of the ejector rod housing and the cylinder flutes. Also the loading gate pivot arm is thicker on USA parts guns than those on the Italian parts guns.

Is the front sight the same thickness from bottom to the top?
