Hey all, first post here. Let me start by saying I love this site and am really starting to love these great old weapons. Beautiful pieces of art. Anyway, here's my first rifle. I dont know how original it is, but it looks like it was sanded and reoiled and possibly restored. Im no expert at all. Underneath the top stock, the barrel has the traditional milling as does the receiver. But I love this gun and cant wait to shoot it this weekend!
If anyone can offer additional information on what the markings stand for, that'd be great. So the obsession has begun....and now my search begins for a M1 Carbine.
Here's some pics:
This picture shows a "3".
I dont know what this marking is.
Markings stamped in the plate.
