Top is missing (likely was broken). Frozen up from rust when I bought it for $20 at the ReStore. A couple of months and lots of drops of gun oil later, it's functional! Not pretty, but it works.
This thrust mechanism fascinates me! So much so that I bought a 1937 Remington Noiseless Standard (also in need of fixing)
