    Rock Island 1903's

    Just trying to figure out how to post a picture before I pull all of my hair out.
    I did it. Not the best picture, but it posted.

    Hey Ken,

    Does the rifle in the middle have a Hatcher Hole?

    If you mean the one in the middle, it has a Hatcher hole, stippled buttplate and barrel date is a Sedgley 9-44

    I meant the one on the bottom(barrel date). 416,211. It looks hand-fitted to an early WW2 stock. Does it have the hatcher mod as well?

    The finish on the upper two looks like Greek blue. The lower one looks parked.

    Of course, I want them all!

    PD

    Of course, I want them all! 416211 was given to me by a friend as a barreled reciever. Barrel date is HS 7-44. It was drilled and tapped for a peep sight. I rebuilt it with a nice scant grip stock. I;ve got a short slide Lyman with regular knobs on it. With the rear sight slide up you can use the peep or push the button and remove the peep slide. Plan on shooting it in the first highpower match this

    I like them all. Especially the color of that bottom one. Good eye, Pete.
