    I don't know what it is. The prices for a standard shooter are just fine. But it's the collector market that tanked. But it's not just M1903, it's sort of across the board.

    I remember when the...

    The NM collector market has really taken a hit I think. I used to see a nice NM and it would sell for $3500 to $4500 or sometimes more.

    But I've seen recently some in the $2500 range without a...

    So Joe Poyer identified them in his book, interesting. You know I don't have any of his books other than his sniper books.

    It's funny to me because he nails some stuff that is so spot on, that no...

    I made this comment on the cmp forum.

    But I think you have a National Match that was sent to the Marines as a Marine team rifle. Even though the stock has a 5, I believe this was most likely in...

    You know I'm curious now, have you seen info on what you call the type 4 with the NM ad the offset aperature left or right?

    The Marines actually used these and I guess I didn't think the Army...

    It's always the hardest emails I write as it's never a fun thing to say. Speaking of fake paperwork. Someone just bought a Unertl Sniper off Rock Island with a faked document pretty much like you...

    I was trying to find it, because it was a killer document, but I don't know where I put it. But I did find this one series of docs on the stargauge, which is a close second. But I wanted to find...

    On a side note I will always consider Rick B the "guy" when it comes to stocks. Any question I have, I always refer to him.

    There just isn't any better training when you have literally seen or...

    I'm really sorry you lost an assistant editor over that Bob, that is really unfortunate. From my side, most of the feedback I got back was very positive, and I was even able to find one new rifle...

    I'm not discrediting what he told you, I'm only trying to explain that there is nothing in the official Marine Corps docs that backs up the statements that he made. I mean they make it very clear...

    I've been able to run a few of these US Property Model 70's like this, in the low 400k range. Everyone I have ran so far has came back property of the US Army.

    I answered much more in depth on the cmp forum. But I don't think SA had much to do with the 6'' spacing at all. It seemed to be popular in the commercial market, but not in use by the military.

    Hey thanks guys for responding! Does anyone have an idea where to get a replacement front sling swivel or whatever the technical name is?
  14. WWI WRA 1897 Trench, barrel swapped with a pipe Wrench?

    I just picked this up. It came out of an estate and they didn't know it was anything except for a shotgun.

    Looking at it, the barrel has been swapped, and they used a pipe wrench as the tool to...

    This isn't going to make you feel any better either.

    But I think that was a 1919 NM receiver at one time just by the serial number.

    I think it's been refinished so it wouldn't show the...

    I could see why people would think regular rifles were used. Once the Marines rebarreled a NM rifle with a standard barrel, and the NM polished bolt was blued by the Marines. Literally the only way...

    Yeah I researched him. I think it's Carrer J. Which this picture was taken on Guam in 1945/46. This was a 3rd Marine Division photo.

    I researched him a while ago, but I'm pretty sure this is ...

    Yeah they are all the same. Same barrel dates, Same A, and same punch mark on the receiver ring.
