Welcome to the Forum!

I would strongly caution against shooting it because the slide is only partially hardened. It’s also highly collectible.
Besides, you have that Tisas that will replicate shooting the genuine thing.

If you don’t know, learn to do a complete detailed disassembly and soak all the metal parts in Kroil or PB Blaster. Scrub them with a soft toothbrush. Then rinse the parts with a brake cleaner and let dry. Finally coat them with something like Remoil or Ballistol or CorrosionX.

Look on the top of the base (toe) of the two magazines that are solid in color. Are there any letters stamped in it?

When the OP first said "Pittsburgh", I was inclined to be seeing a US&S! But this is absolutely fantastic too. Been in Pittsburgh all my life and could never find a US&S I could afford! Haha.
Congrats on the find!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The CMP Auction site has a real nice US&S at the moment.
