    I see Mk III bridges at Gun Shows from time to time. Two at the last show I was at. Too bad that`s not an option for a while.

    The Ross Mk II (Canada Tool & Specialty Co.) are...

    The military Mk III bridge will fit in place of the bridge on your M-10 .280 rifle.

    Way easier and more stable than what you are proposing.

    Your E-10 barrel is likely 22". Measure it using a cleaning rod down the bore with the bolt closed.

    This is true for commercial rifles built on the 1905 action.

    Commercial rifles based on the M-10 action (M-10, E-10 & R-10) have a rounded crown.

    From what I have seen the earlier Factory Sporters were marked M1910. Later ones are marked M-10.

    All the Military rifles I payed attention to are marked M-10.

    This leads me to think it was...

    The barrel on your rifle has been set back. They did this on some rifles to clean up the chamber.

    The sights would have been relocated when this was done.

    327 is most likely the serial number.

    This rifle was built too early to be military, except maybe the donor barrel.

    Barrel looks to be later military maybe? Are there any rear sights?
