I understand that very well. The fact remains I have/had yet to see one on a No5.smooth cocking pieces were a war time expedient. They were obsoleted and replaced. That one escaped.
There was a sight being sold aftermarket which used a larger diameter axis pin and that required drilling the hole larger to fit.Explain please. I know nothink.
You stole a collection! If the "crappy old 10/22" is indeed over 50 years old (as in you didn't say it merely as an expression) that too might be something worth holding on to. Pre-plastic era...oh yeah.Well I got it. Plus few other rifles for 1200 ducats. A WWI milsurp rifle in nice shape, a newer fancy Win 1895 , some kinda old milsurp Japanese rifle, an old winchester .22 bolt gun, and a pretty old crappy 10/22 that could have been mine 50 years ago. Plus lots of .303, '06 with clips , many .22 . The old guy just wanted to unload it. May take a few days or weeks to take proper pics.
I have no idea where I should post them all. I prolly will want to sell a couple because I don't have room in my safe. And I have no idea as to how go about selling online or on this website. It may be just local.
