I'm interested in why you think that is a NM rifle. It can't be from the description or the pictures. Nothing shows the first evidence of it being a NM. In fact there isn't any evidence that the barrel is marked appropriately. However it is one of Elmers receivers. It is definitely not glass bedded.http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=197447359
It's actually for sale too (no reserve).
We need senator Joe McCarthy now more than ever.
I think one lesson they are going to learn is that if you can't confirm the barrel info as being a real "Devine" rather than one of the receivers that the Reese Bros acquired in the buy and sold much later, you may not be able to recoup your money. If it is a real Texas M1A and not just a Texas receiver then it probably sold about where it should. At least based on my experience it did. It's right close to what I expected.Interesting, But I'm Not Sure What Really Is The..."Lesson Learned"?
