I agree completely.

lyman,

I would be interested in seeing photos of your rifle markings.

Thanks!

Default Found Another One Today...

Today at Ohio Gun Collectors Association, I observed an additional Model 75 with the same "Property of U.S.A." marking on it as the one I saw in Louisville last month. At first, I thought it might be the same rifle, but it was a different serial number. The one I saw in Louisville was serial number 60126, and the one at OGCA today was serial number 39842. I wish I could have taken pictures, but they were not allowed at either venue.

I agree so far with the consensus presented in the RFC forum that these are faked markings, however I was surprised to see another example exactly like the first one so soon afterwards. The location of the marking was the same as the previous one, on the left side of the receiver at the breech. This marking looked slightly better than the one observed previously. The rifle observed today was manufactured in 1942, while the rifle observed last month was made in 1949.

Any thoughts?

Shooter:

It has been several years since you posted this. Would you mind taking a couple of pics of your M75 with these markings, please? There is some debate in the collecting community on US marked Model 75s. Your rifle might help advance the debate.

Thanks.

Charlie
