Hi. I am looking to buy a no5 barreled receiver. I found these. Are they intact as far as you can tell. Early on I got bit by a short no1. Thank you
Absolutely true. From my working on my own No5 Mk1 they appear to be correct. Scallops on the chamber area and evidence of the taper pins holding the flash hider on at the muzzle end. I.m sure there are other details others can pick out. But as the quote indicates ask!Why not ask the seller what length the barrels are, and then compare them to known 'good ones' ?
You are obviously not aware of the very VERY rare variant that was made for shooting whilst hiding behind a tree.If I ran across those barrels, I'd be thinking of making a floor lamp.
If I saw those on RTI web site, I'm sure they'd be listed as Premium Select Grade as found in Eritrea . You pay more but you get so much more in the end...like a bent barrel.
