    Posted: 20 Feb 2020 at 5:18pm

In the link above, it appears that this Pasadena (which seems to have a reasonable starting price) has a number etched on the right side of the receiver.  It appears to be in the same format that the serial numbers are.  Alpha character followed by numbers.  The number also looks low enough to actually be a Pasadena number.

I know that when these were being sold folks could pay extra for added options.  Initials etched on frames and magazines, and custom serial numbers too.

Was there an option to have the serial number etched on the receiver too?  I have never seen this before.

If so, wouldn't this create problems with the ATF and FFL paperwork if someone were to purchase this having a serial number on the receiver and the frame?



If you were happy and you knew it, would you clap your hands?

This was an option and I have only seen it on low serial number Pasadena's.

The frame is considered the gun so that is the only serial number that has consequences.

I have a Pasadena that the original buyer "optioned" with his initials on the frame and magazine.  I just hadn't seen an example with serial numbers.

I messaged the seller and the reply was that the frame, magazine and receiver all are marked with the same number.

I  have also tried to get some other images but for some reason I can't get any.
Please do take a very close look, there is some pitting , parts of the frame have been smoothed out also the  windage adjustment looks to be enlarged (stripped) .
My belief is there may be some hidden under the covers.......  ?
