Good morning John,Just a couple of comments. First, paul s, thanks for presenting a quite interesting appearing rifle. Just the gripe... To vent a bit of frustration. Would surely like to view pix of the whole rifle "in the wild". Good pix. Both sides +; barrel band, All markings. For me, an interesting rifle original or not. What's viewable, not 'centerfold' quality.
Michael, thank you for your comments which appear pivotal to solving the issue! Just the aside, your "Attachment" won't open.
Thanks for an interesting Thread!
