Picked up an all matching 1908. Am plesed with it except for one worry. The parade hook is missing off the front band, the swivel hole at the front of the trigger guard is neatly filled in and a permanent rear swivel has replaced the fitting for the movable one. Does this sound legitiment? Thanks, Dub

The Brazilians may have done this,dosent sound like the anything that the Hackers do in the USA.Is the receiver in the white?.Is it a DWM made one? I thinkk that the rear swivel could be replaced or up graded to a permanant one to be used maybe with M1 Garand type slings?Just my .02 but the things you mentioned are minor,finding a matching 1908 is not easy now a days.

I got a '08 Brazilian for Christmas last year from Sarco. The handguard doesn't look right. It covers up the top of the crest, and the front where it fits under the barrel band sticks out and was obviously crudely carved. Maybe the arsenals jury-rigged some rifles...
