I found this listed on Armslist. What was "Golden 50"
Sounds like the same ad. west Mobile, AL. Thanks for the offer. Seller got back to me and says its a Model 30, not a model 30A, BUT also says it has full length magazine. NOT what I want. I want a 1/2 magazine. Since it does not have a 1/2 half magazine I did not ask any more about it being a "Golden 50". He also said it has a gold trigger. I am not sure what years gold triggers were used, but I don't think any Model 30s would have one. Maybe later Model 30As.I think that ad is in an Armslist local to me. Well, about an hours drive. Anyway, I go there all the time, and I was planning to go down that way tomorrow. As it happens, I'm also an FFL, so if you make contact, and want to use me to face to face for you, let me know - this is just as a favor, no interest in any gain. (if it is the same gun - flaking stock finish?) Joel
Roy, I'm glad you said so, cause I sure thought I was missing something. Still- I just spent an enjoyable time reading those pages.Bob, I apologize for the link above. I'm not finding anything in the Brophy book about the "Golden 50" designation, I had just assumed it would be there.
