    I avoided saying that but as per usual, Ebay seller has an incorrect listing. Agreed, not even close.
  4. No, I said they were STRIPPED into every single...

    No, I said they were STRIPPED into every single part and all stripped parts checked for serviceability. I wouldn't doubt the bolt removal story though. If you observe the rear sight cover has a...

    It's never that way. At the time there were lots of them and they meant nothing to time or space and it was convenient to use an "Old .303" for a hunting rifle.

    Some nice old Frankford arsenal ball rounds there too. I bought into a box of that stuff one time at a show, still have some to dig out and photo...nice.

    I'm not sure what these guys were doing exactly, serviceability check I think it was supposed to be.

    If you need to post pics there are tutorials here or you can just email them to me and I'll post them. See PMs...

    In Canada, the odds of finding an original assembled M1 are very scarce. Only some of the lend lease rifles that came in will be correct. Alan Lever of Lever Arms in Vancouver imported many Danish...

    I would agree and suggest exactly the same. Perhaps a simple glass bead and blue on the gun but a polish and blue so it all matches would be super nice...

  14. The proper sling, I know someone here must have...

    The proper sling, I know someone here must have one spare. As for the leather one, I've cut more than a couple off just because it was easier than trying to wrestle with it. It's a one inch...

    There's a whole long thread about rust bluing here and a few members have done it very successfully. That could be a way to go. I'd be surprised if you couldn't find a gunsmith close to you that...

    Nope, no hit Bill...SRS #1 that is. Someone with a later version maybe. Nice piece though.

    Really nice shape. Now for the M1917 gun...
  18. I don't understand what the worry about that...

    I don't understand what the worry about that Uncle Mikes sling is. It's a commonly available sling, Brownells retails them. I'd cut it and be away with it, then you can put the correct one on. Cut...

    I'll bet it's in SA museum site. (Bill Meuse, Museum Curator, Springfield Armory NHS) Seems he was the senior curator.

    Top one is the M1921 model and the other is the T31 bullpup. They're in the books...

    I would say so.



    If you type "303 headspace gauges for sale in USA" in your search engine you get no shortage of sources. Also a WTB in the correct forum in this site may glean you a set.

    Yes, classic Savage. Parts were used as required without worry about who made them. "Parts is parts" the saying goes...

    Quite a mixed bag isn't it? The wood has beech butt and birch forend with a couple of Savage marked pieces. Looks like this one was either assembled or just worked every day until it retired. ...
