    Need A Photo

    For a future article in the GCA Journal, does anybody have a photo of a trigger group with a C 46008-2SA hammer in the white? This would be on a rifle in the 175ooo to 250ooo serial range.

    Heart

    AFAIK nobody knows. I assume it is an annual code like the other marks that I can identify. At one time I speculated that it might be a Rock Island code used after SA stopped making NMs in 1963....

    I would guess they are just standard WWII rebuilds of guns that had been converted years earlier. I don't think there were many Gas Traps still around by 1944.

    Could be the one with X as a last digit. Note that these have three zeroes. "One" denotes a one-line address, "Engraved" denotes how it is marked.

  13. Heat Lots

    It's odd that nobody has yet found a list of the heat lot codes assigned to steel producers, and it ain't for not trying. We have plenty of good guesses, but I'd like to see an official document.

    Shims

    The purists at SA were opposed to shims because it meant that tghe combo was custom-fitted, a real no-no. Not only that, if the fault were with the receiver, it would always need custom-fitting when...
