    If you believe this I know of some super secret "overwater" property that runs between Brooklyn and Manhattan I can sell to you!

    The rifle started life as a BSA No I Mk III in 1917. It's a shame it was butchered into whatever it is now from a WWI veteran. Numrich doesn't even have a listing for Golden State Arms. Finding that...

    Leave it alone finish wise, there's nice honest use on it, nothing to be ashamed of unless you want a safe queen. Replace all springs with a fresh set from Wolff, clean and lubricate throughly, put...

    It looks like a K- 60B. Made sometime between 1956 and 1969. Great scopes that hold their zero forever if not damaged.

    It's a really nice looking rifle. What your son doesn't know won't hurt him. Just make sure you clean it after you shoot it and before he sees it. My fingers would be itching to get at that.

    That all sounds great. Best of luck with your new Toy. The only shortcoming is the original rear sight was numbered to the receiver. If that doesn't matter to you then it doesn't matter at all! Get...

    I sure would. If there's any chance the original sight and it's hardware come with it then it's a great deal. I highly doubt the original sight is anywhere to be found though.
