This rifle came from the estate of a World War II vet in nearby Madison County, Tennessee. We have no information as to whether he actually brought it back; but it has no re-import stamping anywhere. It also lacks any markings on its chamber area to indicate which armory manufactured it. Its chief detraction, though, is evidently a missing barrel guard wood piece, the piece that sits atop the barrel along its forend area. Other than that, the rifle is solidly Very Good, and approaches Excellent Condition. 10 to 15 percent of its metal is affected by red spotting, here and there with light crustiness. The stock is aged and has some of what we call a lizard effect near the receiver; and there are light to moderate pecks and scuffs that affect 15 to 20 percent of the wood surface. The rear sight may lack a spring and another part or two; it is intact and operable but it flops around loosely on its elevation operation. The forward stock band is somewhat loose because of the absence of the top handguard.
This rifle, as we have pointed out, has much to commend it. Its bore is exceptionally clean, with no visible pitting and the rifling is very strong. The blue finish on the metal is strong and intact as well, with detractions noted above. Bolt has nearly full strength casehardening finish intact on its body, with brown patina on its handle. Bolt is nowhere serialized, but the stock cartouches serial number matches the receiver’s, QS89xx. Screw stress is in evidence only on the forward action screw and forend cap screw.
Markings read 4/UT on left side of trigger guard. There is one marking directly above the chamber on top of the barrel that looks like an inverted 5-point star. Bolt’s safety tab has an encircled LZ insignia on its rear side. Barrel length is an impressive 27 inches.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
