Nice score Rob. I can’t wait to make the trip again soon and hopefully will find a gem like you did.

Rob you are lucky guy!

Rob - that is a really nice clear cartouche, good find.

I would have liked to have gone today but I'm at my yearly limit. It would have been like standing outside a bakery while on a diet. :>)

Wow Rob -- you picked up a nice rifle. You definitely had a hard choice to make; couldn't have gone wrong with either rifle, IMHO.

Rob, did you notice whether either SA-52 had filled in M1C holes?

Neither receiver had previously been an M1C. They generally do not like to put those in the store cause they do so well at auction.
I was frankly surprised to the the regular receiver SA-52s as it was.

Justin,
yes, I would say very lucky since lots of other customers had a chance to get it before I found it. I have a restored Win13 that is needing that stock to finish it off.

I looked at the M1 Man statue and saw several interesting serial numbers including the early IHC SN 4448734 Postage Stamp.
I will dig in a little more each trip since that will give me something to do while waiting to get in on my trips down.

Rob

Rob, I got a great Winchester stock on a mail order SA field grade and I put it on my WRA service grade that came with CMP wood. I was very excited when I opened that box and saw the beautiful walnut GHD.
I got to the south store for the first time in August and picked up a worn field grade SA that was unremarkable except for the beautiful deep red brown walnut wood stock with a sharply struck DAS cartouche. I took that home and put it on my 5.9 SA, and a well worn GAW went on the field grade SA I had in the parts stash.
Great score on the awesome GHD! I am glad you had fun!

Where did all the 1903s come from all of a sudden? The philipines?
