    Interesting! I don’t see punch markings on the trigger guard at all. And to me the wear/bluing loss on the barrel looks consistent with the receiver so I lean toward it being the original barrel but certainly anything is possible. Regardless I like it a lot! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The only mark I see on the wood on the bottom is right behind the trigger guard, as pictured here. Very curious about the type of wood the stock is made from as well... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes, it is 6.5x55. And it does look to me to be basically in original shape, although I am new enough to these I don’t know that I could spot refurb markings if they even exist. One of my favorite parts of milsurp collecting is running across old stuff like this and just thinking back about the years and circumstances it has seen! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    On that outing I was shooting Federal. But I shoot/have shot PPU in other calibers and plan to do so in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Ran across this one recently and was very pleased with my first range trip with it. Rifle itself is all matching right down to the wood and cleaning rod. Bayonet does not match numbers but was a cool bonus I thought. The target shows my first 10 shots with it. This was only at 50 yards but that is the farthest distance my range offers. Enjoy!

    On The Way!

    It certainly wasn’t anything personal at all. Folks who think like you do will fit right in with no problem at all based on my experience. As others have noted, some folks think they need to move places like TN so they can “fix” everything to be more like CA, NY, MA, IL, etc. But I genuinely welcome you and think you will like it!

    On The Way!

    Welcome aboard from Cookeville, just a little west of where you will be. I went to school in a NW Suburb, got out, moved back down to TN, and have never been tempted to go back other than for brief visits. As others have said you will love it here. Beautiful scenery, good quality of life, minimal communist interference. Just don’t go trying to change too much stuff!!! But seriously, WELCOME!

    Kids SHOULD walkout at school

    This is why we home school ours, and I am the child of a recently retired public educator, who agrees wholeheartedly! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why should I buy an AR-15?

    I am wrestling with the same thing. I have had one and liked it ok but didn’t love it, and traded out of it for stuff I liked better. But I am mulling over the idea of a Saint as you are. Trying to decide if I need one bad enough to part with stuff I like better... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    In my experience they are a little tougher to find but they are out there. Usually several on GunPoker at any given time. I like trying to find stuff at prices more reasonable than what you find on auction sites too so that makes the search a little more involved, but hey that is half the fun! I really like the fit and finish on them compared to others. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
