Default My new NPM Service Grade--North Store

Hi guys, first post here, but I've been reading posts since my first North Store trip back in September. I wanted to share the new Service Grade National Postal Meter that i picked out at the North Store with my pop a few weeks back.

Oddly enough this one has a Union Switch and Signal sub-contracted receiver--that makes two for me and only 50,050 to go...

Data:
Receiver: National Postal Meter 4346xxx U
Barrel: Buffalo Arm (sic, no S) 12-1943 (sic, 19 included) flaming bomb
Flat bolt: N 14, faint stencil of the last four digits of the receiver number
Trigger Housing: N 16, plum colored Austrian re-blue
Hammer: half-stamp of what looks like UI, could be NI or IN...or gibrish
Front sight: SN
Recoil plate: LN
Slide: C / N
Trigger: BOE ? Faintly stamped on the top of the trigger
Band: Type I, UI
Rear sight: milled adjustable SA with half stamp of armorer's wheel
Stock: Highwood Trimble TN, last four receiver #, no other markings
Handguard: unmarked 2 rivet, finish matches stock

Stock, TH, Slide, and bolt bear last four digits of the receiver number.

Trigger housing marked LGKST 1125--for Steirmark, Austria

Green plastic luggage tag on the sling pivot reads: "Inspector Franz Huber
Gendarmerie Post, St. Stefan." Translation courtesy of James Mock.

Looks great and the wood has some great grain in it.

Congrats!
