    I think this rifle is for sale on Guntrader with a side view of its markings.
    None of the pictures on milsurps have this picture.

    Not surprised it wasn't shown. Those screws have been butchered. The Engraving looks a little odd. What is that big blob of stuff to the right of the engraving?

    The reason that picture wasnít posted on this thread is because it didnít exist when the thread was posted.
    I took more detailed pictures the last couple of days whilst Iíve been sending them off to people much more knowledgeable than myself on these rifles for them to have a look.
    Yes those screws are worn, the mount needed a shim fitting for use with the replica mount, so theyíve been in and out.... new screws are easy enough to find.
    The big blob of stuff is paint. Itís been repainted in areas at some point.

    So are the pads sweated on now, or are they just screwed on with shims behind? They both look like they've been off?

    Do you have closer and clearer photos of all the markings Mike? And the wrist?

    Not saying it isn't genuine, but it clearly needs some TLC which might affect it's desireability

    The front pad is just screwed on at the moment as I took the shim out to keep with the scope & mount. I havenít touched the rear but itís certainly been off at some point.

    Itís definitely had a few rebuilds, repaints, the Wood has also been rubbed down and stained or oiled, so it could do with stripping and some TLC.
