    I removed the 745 number because it's confusing him. But it's very clear that MOS 761, a Scout Sniper's role was scouting and providing reconnaissance and not just shooting. Which is exactly what I...

    Almost everything Jim just stated above is factually not correct. He's confusing different era's of Marine history and lumping them all together. Which almost none of it is correct for WWII.

    Nice catch Jamie! I didn't even see the Camp Maxey until now. Yeah that was Army, not the Marines. I guess I didn't think anyone would seriously post an Army Sniper's statement as evidence that...

    Single heat treat bolts were never pulled from service. Because your rifle has a 1930 barrel date it is a rebuild, so it could have had any bolt installed in rebuild as long as it was made up to...

    The Marines got rid of the M1917's by 1920. So there were never any USMC Unertl scopes on the M1917's.

    Really there were not any A5's on the M1917's for the military either. I remember a...
