Take a look at this one. The rifle sure doesn't appear to be a M1D(No barrel block to mount scope)

Nonsense! Look again at the close up picture of the heel.

There is an "A" in "CAL." and another in "ARMORY".

Never doubt the CMP!

Ya' think that sometimes they cut and paste from old descriptions?

It looks like there is a number written on the white bag. I don't think it is 2784746 (although it is very hard to tell).

I wonder if someone switched it out for the D some time when it was it was in storage?

Wouldn't there be a number on the box, as well?

Mistakes do happen. The CMP let very rare rifles slip through their fingers at least twice - they sent an Irwin Pederson as an Inland (apocryphal - a thread from the last Forum that I saw pictures from but never verified), and am M1903 Mark I that did not have the extractor hole milled in the receiver. That one is in my safe!

While fixing things...

Not an Anschutz 40-X.... it should be labeled as Remington 40-X with Anschutz stock.
