    Michael also took some gorgeous pictures of rifles in his collection in color, which, admittedly, the pictures in the book don't do justice.

    I'd like to see if the box is a typical DCM type shipping container. It does have a late serial number and many of them were taken right from production and placed into reserve

    Michael P. was my "go to guy" for any questions on "classic sporters". He passed away a few years back and I still miss him. Always glad to help, too.

    If you mean "classic" sporters, you couldn't do any better than to pick up the two books written by the late Michael Petrov - Custom Gunmakers of the 20th Century. Excellent books!!

    I'm not saying it is odd, just that it wasn't done by the military - obviously, a civilian post-military job. The military had plenty of M1903 barrels to use as replacements. M1903A3 barrels used...

    Yes, the rear stock bolt came first, about 1907/08; the second was added 1917/18. If you see a stock with a single stock bolt in "front", that is almost always a Sedgely stock.
