A recent acquisition I made. I have gathered a few of these now and really enjoy the history of them but also shooting a couple of them on a regular basis.
This is a 1st alpha with the butt stock groove. It is a 100% matching with probably a 95% finish and excellent bore. The photos reflect all the parts that should match on an early VIS. The lower, upper, barrel, main spring housing, safety lever, hammer, firing pin retainer, ejector and de-cocking lever.
