original metal trigger frame

I have one of these puppies (Paint has been stripped for the most part) with the original 2 piece hard plastic grips and the newer rubber ones.
Was wondering what something like this might be worth?

Maybe $15? That is what I sold a few of mine for, and it took a little while to sell.

IIRC, they're still available.

Is the the front of the trigger guard round or square ? Does it have a spring loaded trigger ?

At one time ( early 90's ) both Mags and Cockers shared the same frame. The frame has a rounded front corner on the trigger guard and the internals have a couple of pins or protrusions for the spring to attach to. If its one of those it may be worth a bit more than a stock one.

See my picture ....

Not sure exactly. I just bought a minimag with this frame on it. I was asking around at Automags.org and apparently this frame was used by both Mags and Cockers.

Heres a copy of Devilmans post in the AO thread......

Actually that spring will sit quite well on that little nubbin that is sticking up there...

The frame is a cocker frame. Early style. Early cockers aka snipers had no 3 way. The pump was all that mattered and the frame was used to trip the sear. No timing persay involved. Early mags and early cockers used the same frames. They were interchangable for the most part.

The change came when AGD frames were made but did not have the cut out in the right side to allow a 3 way rod to plug into to a trigger plate. Those frames were able to be used on pump cockers, but not on cockers that had 3 ways on them.

The spring nubbin is there to hold the spring into place as it was used to connect up to a sear to push it upwards. If you take the frame off or just look up through where the sear sticks down you'll see its a round hole. The spring would go through that hole and press up against the sear of the cocker. Without that spring in there, the cocker would not catch the hammer when when pump was pulled back.

You will also notice that the back frame bolt does NOT have the cut in to allow the thumbscrew to fit more flush with the frame.

You can also notice that the front of the trigger guard does not come down to a squarish profile at the bottom but is instead fully rounded.

Thats all I know so far about this early frame.

This in not entirely correct. I have a original stock Sydarm with the ORIGINAL sear/trigger return spring in it.
