A non firing replica. Hmm.
An official Dewat? A deactivated bring back?
$900+ is pretty steep for a wall hanger.

looks like a genuine vhinese milled receiver type. imagine it was de-watted by welding shut chamber and welding over bolt face. the rules for deactivation weren't well codified in 1970 or so, when this might have come back in a duffle bag. doubt that it came back early enuf to be a re-wattable registered de-wat.. no paper advertised.

On the selector side of the receiver only the trigger pin hole is the correct size and in the right place. I do not even know what the little pin near it is. The other two pin holes are most noticeable for their absence. Which is strange as they are present on the other side of the receiver.

That appears to be a reproduction(dummy?) receiver, none of the machining look "right".
