If someone could help me post individual pictures to here from Imgur I will but until then this is the only way I know.
Mr Hanky, is this a matching base to the serial of the rifle? This is interesting staking. It looks like the original staking was from a soft receiver that was subsequently restaked like a hard receiver. Just wondering if this might be an example of some SA rework when they were trying to correct accuracy problems. The base would have been from a hardened receiver. The staking of a pin and the other stakings look like maybe they were trying to figure out how they wanted to do it going forward.
