    Any idea on this BAR belt?

    Guessing this is a foreign military version of a BAR magazine belt. Auction buy, bunch of junk in the box mostly. Has some age but can't find an exact match online. The ends of the adjustable waist...

    I don't have a very precise tool handy but it looks like mine (known not original) comes out a hair under .4, about 25.5/64ths.

    The worst part of the brazing is what you saw in the first pic. The rest looks better, but still nothing like the exemplar. It's definitely it's a cut barrel and reinstalled sight, just as you said...

    OK, great, thank you! The stock has no marks on the nose. The only stamps I can make out other than the AAP are what looks like a faint "F" to the left of the AAP, a number "4" in front of the...

    Yep, not quite what I was hoping but I didn't lose any skin. When I run up some ammo I'll see what happens on the range and make a decision then about whether to keep it. I'd like to eventually...

    Sure, makes sense. Well, all that's left is to see how it shoots. I'm only into the rifle for about $750 anyway, snagged a very nice 1917 at the same auction so I'm still happy.

    Thank you again...
