This is another gun I got that had been "cleaned".  The remaining markings are few.

These parts were kinda pricey, so I guess I am going to have to mentally work up to actually drilling the holes and threading the lower jaw. The tumbler hole is a perfect fit, so that is one thing I don't have to worry about.
