The walnut is darker than what I got on my Special. This looks good. Here are some inside pics. I highly recommend stripping these rifles for a thorough cleaning before shooting. I show some areas in the pics below. Just about every inside square corner or pocket (including where the bolt lug sits in the op rod) had caked dry dirt.

The barrel looks virtually new.

Here are a few inside pics:

That looks like a replacement barrel and not the original barrel. Good gauges reading though. No dimple under the hand guard clip. It has the oversize dimple on top of the "P" proof mark that is typically associated with a barrel off an HRA rifle. I don't remember if HRA used any LMR barrel. - On second review, the picture is just a little fuzzy. There is a discoloration that might be a dimple where it should be.

Also, it is a HRA trigger group.

Yes, HRA did use LMR barrels, especially in certain serial number ranges.

How about the hammer and safety? Remember, the housing is just one part of the trigger group.
