    What are they? More What's-its!

    Hi all.

    I'm taking Steve's lead except this time, I don't know what these are (or at least don't know their origin).

    If you're not particularly concerned about the historicity of a mount but just want to scope your rifle, I'd abandon this mount and buy a new SK mount. That would be a much easier search!

    He said heíll be making an announcement on Tuesday. It would be surprising but not *shocking* if that was a national ďstay at homeĒ order. Just my gut feeling.

    It has a Johnson Automatic barrel on it.

    I knew that star meant something, thanks for reminder! It is a shame the ears were ground off. Just pretty much kills any chance of being restored.

    If it wasnít caked in nicotine, I would. I doubt Iíll be able to get the smell out of the sling.

    The prices would not indicate that K98s and Lugers are considered more evil than Chinese SKSs.

    ...unless evilness is worth a premium!

    You may be interested to see that the Eddystone with this serial number shows up in the SRS. Doesn't tell you anything about your rifle but a neat happenstance anyway.

    After some eBay prowling, I came up with a Lyman Challenger 4X.
