My new-to-me Golden 39-A Mountie. It was abandoned in a house we bought. The local police department confirmed it wasn’t stolen. Previous owners claim it wasn’t theirs. That’s a win for me!
I spent a ton of time fixing this up. It’s not the best, but it’s sure better than it was! Just waiting on the magazine band now. Even after soaking for a week in penetrating oil, one light tap with the brass punch split it into four pieces.
Luckily it’s only a $13 part and I found one in stock.
Edit: No gallery posts here, but there are a couple before and after pics on my r/LeverGuns post.

Where were the guns at when you found them that the former owners didn’t know that they were there?
