    Unbelievable, Fantastic!! Very lucky to have this fine example of what General Patton called " the greatest single battle implement ever devised by man "

    The one I own is an H & R post war WW2 Korean war rifle, and have shot about a 1,000 rounds through her, no problems.

    I would not store your rifle with the canvas muzzle cover on it. A long time ago I had a M1 carbine that started rusting under the canvas cover. The rifle was thoroughly cleaned and oiled, so I think the canvas was maybe treated with something that caused this, like MRT. So just to be on the safe side........

    Enjoy her, she's beautiful!!!

    My apologies, but I will decline to post photos here as I wish to retain the rights to my pictures. I think I may have some photos on another board that I may be able to link.
