Well, the muzzle pretty well swallowed my gauge, reading a 4. No big surprise there. And the rifle looked great below the wood.I see you got it apart. The stacking sling swivel was rusted tight when I had it. How did it look under the wood? Can you check the muzzle wear? I dropped a bullet in and it only went to the ogive, so I was wondering if it had been shot much. I see you did find the stock stamp, lots of hands rubbing on it to wear it off like that. Glad you are enjoying your "new" rifle.
I had no problem getting the rifle disassembled, except for getting the rear sight leaf off the base, but that issue I mentioned earlier in this thread.
One forum member requested full length pics of the entire rifle. Not a problem, but the cost of film and developing is getting expensive...GI2
