What did I miss here?

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.
If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re a frikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

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".
