The end result of a long period of collecting. It started with the chance to buy a 5 digit receiver from a friend in the US, and became a scavenger hunt obsession.
All the parts are correct for the period, except the barrel, which is a Korean War era SA barrel. I did manage to locate a decent 1940 barrel, but $1000 US was a lot too steep for me to justify. Some of the other parts used: The stock is a long channel SPG The rear sight is a Flush nut type with checkered knobs. The sight spring and base are both numbered.
