    If they just called them what they are, they would probably sell more of them just at a lower price. What ever happened to "Truth in Advertising"?

    Looks like the dies moved when they were trying to stamp that carbine. The serial is an overstamp. Probably done to correct a bad stamping on the first try. I've seen this a couple of times and not...

    Also make certain the bolt is closing all the way. Very often the tiny dimple on the primer is from the firing pin bumping the primer as the bolt stops. This can happen if the bolt stops short of...

    I saw it and it was one of the few carbine stocks that was worth much. But it wasn't right for me, otherwise you probably would never have seen it. I got there early on saturday.
