@Cowtownscout ......I found a copy by the NRA..."Remodeling Military Rifles" copyright 1940 and reprinted Sept.1946.
A lot of fine print and a few pages had pictures/illustrations. Dues for the NRA were $3.00 a year or Two years for $5:00.
Collaborators were: F. C. Ness, Ellis C. Lenz, Alvin Linden and COL. Townsend Whelen.
The booklet used the U.S. Rifle Model 1917 as a guide....There has been a few silver fish reading/eating it but 99% legible, so could be at the oldest 80 years and don't know if there were additional reprints after 1946.
And adding insult to injury, 2 days before discovering the booklet, I took mine to a GunSmith to look it over.
