This is a training rifle made from 1946-49. They were to be used by our military for training purposes. Most of the ones I have seen have "Property of US Gov't" stamped on top of the action. This one does not, so I don't know what that means. If anyone knows, please tell me. It was drilled and tapped for a scope, but the screw holes have been plugged. Very good condition, w/ no gouges or scars on the wood. One rusty spot on the barrel. For any other questions just ask or call me @ 214-697-0380. The leather sling is good w/ no markings.
