    I think the type 1 band doesn't fit this scenario though. AFAIK by the time Winchester transitioned to adjustable sights the type 2 band was in use.

    I am always amazed at how different pictures can look. RR, definitely avoid a brush or anything like that. Bore cleaner should soften it but will take some time. I am at the point now, I clean them...

    Rear sight is USGI. I think some sharper pictures of around the staking would help. Unless the rifle has really been detail cleaned and it's seen some use, you will see dirt, grime, oil residue...

    If you have a close up picture of the receiver dovetail both sides and staking it should give a good indication if the flip has been on since it left the factory. Usually they are coded base and leaf...

    I don't think you'll need to worry about a 9 spring cut on that trigger housing... It looks very nice and legit as Mr. 777 points out. How is the flip sight marked, base and leaf?

    Same here, I decended from Ole, have a few of those Norwegian M4 bayonets and would love a K art. But not the right one here at that price.

    I keep asking myself if inflation is really this bad. I bought my first NIW mags at a gun show ~25 years ago for $5 IIRC. They were all over gun shows for $10-15 for years.

    777, those are nice boots... Seems like each lot are 1 size which might make them harder to sell unless you're a bigger player. Not bad sizes though. Many lots of them for sale, will have to see...

    I think the slight wear shown on the receiver where the bolt lug rides would look different if it were painted. Also the hardness test dimples would look like they were filled with paint? Not unlike...

    That's a shame. Not sure how fixable that is, and then having the confidence in it going forward. If it were mine, I'd just find a new receiver. Check for Colin in the CMP forum parts for sale...

    Great looking rifle! I can't imagine cherry picking over 100 in early configuration, that's probably a story in itself I'd like to hear.

    No, this was a different one on GB 68348xx, ears cut off the front sight, barrel band cut down, crack in the stock. Nice dark park original finish. Parts kit sold for $1120, insane in my book!
