Default NS Report 9/6

There was an IHC there. Pause for dramatic effect. A drill rifle. Now take a second to catch your breath.

Here's what else I saw:

3 ea M1D Rack
1 Rk M1D Service
1 Rk M1C Field
1 Rk M1C Service
1.5 Rk B/R
2 Rk Drill Rifles Mostly SA/HRA with 1 IHC( Postage Stamp) and 1 or 2 WRA.
1 Rk Rack - WRA
3 Rk Field - SA
2 Rk Field - HRA
1 Rk Field - WRA
1 Rk Service - SA*
1 Rk Service - HRA*
* AF G-3 rifles, Very nice with NM parts to be found. Most had new stocks with probably half having the CMP cartouche. Still listed as SG though.

1 Rk Service Special - SA
1 Rk Service Special - HRA
1 Rk .308 Special
2ea -06 Special


The normal assortment of .22 B/R, 1917 S/Rs, and a chrome 1917 was there. I saw about 8 HR M1A kits, and there was 1 more TRW kit after I left. I did an O-6* check on the SA's that were there and didn't see any. I did see one FG with correct barrel and the tag showed it at 4/5 if I remember. I thought it kind of interesting that most of the AF rifles had early 8/12 inspection dates.

I got the idea there wasn't anything terribly interesting that really called out to you. Is that right?

I was just there for the kit, so I was making a point to not get more interested in anything else. A form of self control. If I had the funds I would have gladly taken one of the AF rifles home.

When you say, "I would have gladly taken one of the AF rifles home". Do you mean Air Force rifles? Can I ask, how you know they are air force rifles?

The Air Force rifles have their barrels polished from the date area all the way around to the handguard clip groove on the left side....and the hang tag is marked AF. I picked one up yesterday...will be here on Friday...that was a 63 SA barrel that measured 0 ME, HRA trigger group, everything else SA, and an almost perfect post war SA stock. Almost all the SA SGs there yesterday had these AF barrels on them and some had the NM op rod too.

From what I have read in the GCA article(Summer 2012) the Air Force Premium Grade were chambered in both 30-06 and 7.62mm. The rifles at the NS were just barrels that were marked NM between the gas cylinder rings and polished in the date area of the barrel and chambered in 30-06. The polished area is the clue that these passed through the AF.
