    Very nice rifle! It appears to be in original shape. It is a pre-war rifle and has the correct pre-war stock (copper or bronze end pieces on the upper handguard and the screwed in sling escutcheons)....

    I agree with Aragorn. The bolt handle knob doesn't appear correct and the wood looks a little too perfect. I guess it depends on the price they are asking.

    Sounds like you have narrowed it down to the loader. You can actually add a set of Cross Armory Quick Pins. They are kind of pricey but they make magazine reloads pretty simple with their maglock...

    Assuming I am reading the serial number correctly (6,64,), the 4-rivet handguard is correct. Looks like a great gun. It has a terrific patina! Your wife did an excellent job!
