    Red tip should be tracer. That one in a picture is a cut off tip ball round. It used to be done to make soft point but during a test with two men, two rifles and 500 rds each...they each had one...

    Looks like someone attacked the area with a screwdriver for a chisel to remove whatever was there...not rot.

    That screw is about twice the length...needed. They only used a short screw with no shank to speak of. Anyway, like you say a detail.

    You know well that it's just a selling point to call these things "Rare" and no matter how common. One hopes a novice will jump and pay "Buy it now" Never mind the aggravation of telling the seller...

    Nice looking old rifle, I'd make a stock marking disc rather than leave it. I know how now. Finding a cut brass screw would be the hardest part...

    Yes, shoot it first. Don't know what gave you the idea it's shot out, whether it's gauged wide open or just a smooth bore but if it's beat then you'll need a good one eventually. You could always...

    Changing the barrel shouldn't take it's accuracy away. If all you're changing is adding a NOS barrel or good used GI then it'll shoot fine.

    Nice old rifle, I was fortunate to own a carbine some decades back in mid '80's. All I could find out at the time was because of the collector that owned it, there was some odd feature. I never...
