Could be the case. My only experience with the Caly Jr. is a stainless handle one which I thought was pinned like the SS Delicas and Enduras, but now that you mention it, maybe only the lock bar pivot was pinned. In fact, I think it might have been you that I sold that SS Caly Jr. to on eBay many years ago
Entirely possible, I've bought a couple of stainless Calypso Jrs on ebay, and yes they are pinned together like the older SS Delica, Endura, Police, etc.
I just pulled out a fishscale FRN Jr and checked. The handle is molded in one piece. The rivet used for the pivot is substantial, so a screw pivot might be possible without a mold change, but I can't say the same for the lockbar pivot pin.
