I already tried. The guy was born in 1934 so he might be still around. He also lived in a small town of only 3k people. A quick phone book search gave his number and address. When I tried calling the number I was told that nobody of that name is living there. Luckily it's a small town, so the plan is to message everyone with the same last name on Facebook and hope the guy is their relative.Now you have to research the troop tag and see what it yields.....
Mine too!My Schmidt-Rubin compulsion (obsession) grew to include the Vetterli line. Be very careful grasshopper!
The rifles have gone waaay up in price up here now, going for $600-$900 Canadian.I think that your case of ammo is worth more than the rifle right now.?
