And then there are these M1922s...

(As the story goes...) immediately prior to and during WWII, Army Ordnance Corps junior officers assigned to the Springfield Armory experimental shop had access to all kinds of parts: obsolete, discontinued, excess, etc. They were known to "roll their own."

Is that one missing the receiver roll marks?

Correct. No receiver markings. Actually, the officers learned the trade, so to speak, by building guns from the obsolete, excess and reject parts bins.

The rifle is not mine. Belongs to the son of the Ordnance officer. There is a 22 Hornet version he built out there also.
