    I don't know...I didn't mind them too much unless you had to do it on the fly. Thing is they're noisy. Box mags are better for most application...

    That was what we used for years too, mixed 50/50 with rifle oil for preservation...

    You always go look at a gun.

    The stock looks very clean.

    Receiver looks like normal wear. Not pristine, not bad either.

    The stock may be after market or un-issued.

    A throat erosion reading is great to determine if you can shoot it or not.

    A lot of those rifles were rear line issue and saw no combat. Its almost guaranteed to be decent as they re-did the poor ones in the US before sending overseas or issuing to men going over seas.
