    Yes. leaded or tinned inside for sure. Pretty un-appetizing.

    Is that your kit layout on the foot of your bed? I commend your personal discipline...make your bed and kit layout... Now get that...

    Well, I have put a tip on a firing pin with wire feed weld. It's hard enough and shaped OK. The spring is a beartrap so if it's mushy you should be able to tell. I'm sure you have enough...

    Nope, not see these before. It's not in the books either. Too bad Bruce Canfield hadn't seen it when he was writing the book.

    Are there NO makers marks anywhere? It looks good so I doubt it's a...

    It's already been flagged by them as a scam...we're sure getting a lots of those lately.

    I had to laugh..."Are you an enthusiast?" Yes, there should be a few neat serial numbers there. That gap letter doesn't turn me on but I understand why it would...

    We can't prove when it was done, just that the arsenal didn't assemble it backwards. A sight can be changed back but sights can be very expensive. If you can wait for Jon to return, he'll shed some...

    And #1 Mk3s too. I just wonder if the reamer was turned while holding it to the side, you can't make a reamer that cuts with a bulge. If you turn it while bearing to one side you cut that...

    As for price, look in Gunbroker for prices around you. Canadian prices don't matter...and don't pay higher than you need to. Go in a bit low and let him bring you up a bit. Come to an...

    Magazine, rear sling swivel and two screws as far as I can see...yes, the butt has had some sanding as the butt plate usually sits deeper in the wood. You have some clean up there anyway so we'll...

    It's about the only thing left. It isn't the mags...or it wouldn't feed, not give ejection issue... New striker...(firing pin)?

    Also you can place a WTB here in forum...sounds like Mark1 has you covered though.

    Yes, that was my point, WHERE did the parts come from... OK then I wonder if the striker was replaced would it have the sufficient snap to push it out on ejection? The extractor holds the casing in...

    Needs a couple things...I wonder what the dark splotches in the wood are?

    And his statement was about our arsenal markings, if you read it.

    I understand what he means as mine had a bulge to one side. I wonder if they had just taken a ream and hogged to one side to increase the outside diameter of the case?

    You missed it in post #4 also...I'd just get a full set of wood and set this butt aside, it's not so important. If you are ordering a parts rifle the butt will be there. Fitting a #1 butt might be...
