Old pic, but yes, and he cocked up the job to boot. I bought a new repro but plate from Numrich and when I pulled the recoil pad off, he'd cut the stock!?...I'm in the market for a stock or wood set. The scope is off now, but the brass never hit it. The rifle ejects brass (30-30 btw) straight up and out.
Incidentally, the safety 'button?' can be seen just behind the trigger. Pre-64's had this feature.
