Seeing as how I have lots of time on my hands presently,I took a chance on a cracked tang one. It's the same one I posted a picture of last week. I found out very quickly why the crack is there. The front guard screw was in very tight,where as the rear was very loose(it took almost 4 turns before it was tight) I don't think it was ever apart before,the trigger guard needed a good knock from a rubber mallet to break free. Other than that though,the gun looks to be hardly used. No primer marks on the bolt head,front sight hood is intact,rest of the stock is in very good shape. I guess it's a Model 46A from 1942. So now on to experimenting on crack fixing. At least the crack does not go through to the bottom.
