Just won one via GB auction. It w/ need a cleaning rod & butt plate. Also I want to replace the cover to which a rail was added in order to make it as original as possible. It doesnít appear that the covers are numbered, just the part below, so it should remain matched if that is the case in the first place? Must see when I get the rifle. I called the seller & asked about the bore? He checked & said it was shiny so thatís good!
Thanks for looking & I welcome any opinions or advice. Thank you. Charles

But what Bubba did in adding that rail to the cover makes me want to puke! WHY exactly??? Never going to be a tack driver & defacing it. Christ almighty!!! So if someone has a spare cover they’d be willing to sell me & help rescue & restore this baby to it’s original state, i’d be forever grateful! Thank you.

A correct butt plate & cleaning rod w/ case would be icing on the cake. The cover is, I believe, the priority. Anything is appreciated!

I was watching that one too.

The scope railed top cover was the deal breaker for me.

What the two holes, drilled in the stock were for is beyond me....

That looks like an aftermarket cover, not a rail added to the factory one. Not sure but the original should have been numbered.
