Picked this one up locally 2 years ago. WWI issue, then reissued for WWII. Got a new barrel, parkerized and new grips. Came with the M3 shoulder holster too. Cheaper than what CMP will want for their stuff.
A lot of people are gonna be disappointed, except those that drank the CMP Koolaid.One of these would be really nice, but there is no way i'll pay what the CMP are asking for the quality they're offering.
Yes, you are right. I dhould have noticed that. Would have done so a couple years ago.I may be wrong however it looks like the sear pin was inserted from the left side. Should be inserted from the left, simple fix.
Other than that great find, why do I always miss finds like that.
There aren't any, think what was done was at local level, and not a full rebuild. Wen I was armorer at Ft Lewis, any thing wemt to "3rd Shop", but that was not the same as a full armory rebuild.What are the armorer marks for the rebuild? My dad has a 1918 rebuilt in fourties by Rock Island Arsenal. Inspector was Frank Krak
