    Yes, I did but was in a hurry and didn't spend much time. I saw a couple flip sights that were on backwards, though. - Bob

    I'll have to 2nd that. My Dad (standing) and his 4 brothers who served in WWII hunted. I had 3 uncles on Mom's side of the family and a cousin - all hunted and served. - Bob

    My understanding is that Grand Rapids assembled a lot of rear sights from components. Probably not all their suppliers marked the leafs? - Bob

    I've been wondering if you knew the markings on the original bolt parts? Yours are identical to mine, except I have a "bomb" following S'G' on the lug. I'm curious if your rear sight leaf is...

    Wish that was true for Portland. I didn't know Seattle was any different. It'll be interesting to see how many of them are prosecuted. - Bob

    $25 for the M2 stock might have been a bit high 30 years ago, but would be at least $100 now for a nice one. That one looks like it could be birch. An original stock now, in fair shape would run at...

    Your rear sight base is marked the same as mine. Take a look for a marking on the top of the sear - you won't have to disassemble any further to see it, but if you do, put the hammer pin in from the...

    I had the same thing happen 21 years ago. If your hospital offers a "Cardiac Rehab" program, it's well worth enrolling. You'll meet others in the "same boat," lose some weight, and become a...

    Tom,

    I replied since no one else seemed willing to step in. I'm confused by these too. I probably should have waited to see if TenOc or others would have posted something. I'm not certain about...
