Default Where did the bolt guns come from?

I see this week there was a 40-X single shot, a barrelled receiver, a Steyr 300 Meter and some other unique pieces. We're these transferred thru the Army or by private donations? Any Ideas?

Returns can come from a lot of obscure places. Closed bases that purchased sporting arms, closed ROTC units, etc..

Yes I'm sure. I guess my point is it would be nice to know if I was bidding on a Army returned 40-X or a donation from XYZ shooter or his estate. Just the history buff in me.

I certainly share your sentiments. But, I think the CMP has long since decided that they will not disclose origin. An M1 is an M1 whether it came from US stores or a MAP return, or Grandpa Bill’s estate.

But we are not talking about M1s. The question is about the oddball bolt guns that are sold in all manner of conditions. They have no issue with identifying the Marine Corp sniper rifles. Detail history may not be available, but it would be nice to know if the item came out of Army storage or Bubba's gun collection.

Same policy applies to all products.

I am not sure if it a policy or not, but doesn't apply to all products:

"US Marine Corp Issue 10x Unertl Sniper Telescope"
"
"The Civilian Marksmanship Program has acquired a small quantity of these telescopes. These are very rarely seen on the civilian market, as USMC marked Unertl scopes were never sold directly to the public. "

"Up for auction is a DEFENSE ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECT AGENCY (DARPA) XM-3 Sniper Rifle used by the United States Marine Corps. In mid-2005, DARPA worked with Lt. Col. Norm Chandlerís Iron Brigade Armory (IBA)"

"This barreled action was received from DOD with a lot of other miscellaneous rifles."
