Description: This rifle is extremely hard to find in this condition. It maintains all the original first version configuration. Original blue finish, Bbl dated 6/22, Double firing pin, Long magazine, non finger grooved stock, thick steel buttplate, 1903 style front sight. It was drilled and tapped (now screw plugged) for a Noeske side mount which is illustrated in Brophys book. This one is SN 1046

I have more photo for serious inquires.

Minor dings, has a wood small chip at top and rear of receiver (typical)

If found in its original, unaltered form, it would be the rarest of the breed and a treasure in any collection. A total of 2,032 were produced from 1922–1924. Of those, 2,000 were allocated for DCM sales, 20 for US Army testing and evaluation and 12 were made into international free rifles for the 1924 international smallbore matches.

The receiver follows closely the lines of the 1903 although it is modified slightly to permit the single loading of .22 Long Rifle cartridges. Its 5-round magazine extends below the line of the stock. The 2-piece bolt is unique having two firing pins, a rimfire bolt face, extraction and ejection system and a smooth cocking piece without the standard knob. The bolt stroke is full length simulating that of a regular service rifle. It is fitted with a Lyman 48B receiver sight.
