Piece of Americana right there folks. Outstanding... That's my favorite/all time stock pattern. Just super comfortable for me. Wish my M2 had that style..

Great gift, I have the same one with globe front sight SN 198. Yes, it is a piece of history that you'll really enjoy. The double firing pin is really unique, isn't it. That's a great family to give such a gift, enjoy it with them.

Yes, this was a great gift. I found the rifle on consignment at a LGS and after a few months went back and put it on hold. I told my older son(13) about it. My wife and son went to the store a few weeks later and arranged with the store that if I came in for it or called about it they would say the consigner took it back and it was no longer for sale. They kept it secret until Christmas morning, when they completely surprised me.

It has a couple of issues:

There is a plugged hole in the action as seen in one of the photos, and one a little over 3 inches forward on the barrel. There is a single hole at each location and they located at about 10:00 o'clock. If anyone knows what type of scope mount these could be for please let me know. The holes have been neatly filled

The butt plate should be blued, and it is parkerized

I am not sure if it is original finish or not, although it is very nice looking, except where the holes were plugged. I will post a better pic showing the plugs.

I just returned from the range these sure are sweet shooting rifles.

When the bolt is retracted, can you see if the "trough" that the bolt reciprocates in, is "in the white", or is it blued?

Regardless . . . It IS a GREAT looking rifle . . . And an even GREATER GIFT!!!
