Cartouche is fake and the stock contour looks incorrect by what I see. Barrel is unknown , buttplate looks good but is also unknown, springs and op rod are also unknown, 7th round modification has been done, most parts look to be reparked. The rifle is someones restoration. The gas cylinder , plug, and sight look real , I'll compare to some real ones if ya'll want me too . The plug is without a hole in the end , which is correct for a late gas trap. With all of the unknowns it makes sense as to why there is no reserve. Bid with care and assume everything that is unknown is either a reproduction part or a newer or modified part. Unless I see something wrong with the gas cylinder after closer examination, the rifle is worth the starting bid. Bubba

If you are selling a gas trap rifle, the most expensive parts that you want to show in photos are the barrel markings and stock without the butt plate. Also is there a keystone spring and comp spring that are original.

The plug on the cylinder looks fake to me as well as the cartouche. The trigger guard should end with -1SA, Additional photos of the front handguard ferrule with lip would help.


Not many front sights marked SA 12703-1, Billy Pyle could not even find an example to photo for his book

Don't know but I'd sure like to find out. I've heard them described as "smooth". Would like to know for myself.

In my experience the "feel" is slightly different. Recoil is different with the dual springs. Accuracy from the example I fired is pretty good. Barnett barrel and gas cylinder.

Did anybody tell him that it was made in May of 1940, not Sept. 1938?
