I think they have been accumulating for quite a while. Mr John Beard used to be the only person working them and then only one day a month if I recall.
Now they have added another armorer who works them every day.
I just hope they last long enough that another one can be purchased next year.

I'm guessing someone must have snatched up that 12-41 pretty quickly. Any idea what the serial was? Mine is 403XXX so I always like to see what's out there from the same batch.

Actually I picked it up and passed it to a gentleman that was trying to find a WWII rifle with original barrel.... he had picked up one that was a poor example of what he was looking for. I would have enjoyed it but I have a lot more opportunities to find these gems than others do so I enjoyed passing it to him and he was very excited...

First time posting and in two weeks I will have my first visit to the South Store. Sorry to read that Tom, (PH68), will not be there on the 5th Dec. Was looking forward to meeting the author of those great reports each week. And tapping some of his knowledge. Hopefully there will be others who can help me find a great M1, and 1903 if still available.

Pete was elated that you were able to help him get such a nice rifle. I don't think he is signed up to post on here, but he says "thanks again".

That was a really pretty rifle for sure.
I take it you did not get the HRA you were looking at and it might even still be at the store?

That's a beauty for sure, congratulations!

That C stock alone is worth $400+, and will certainly make it an excellent and comfortable shooter.
What vintage is it, a pre or postwar C?
