PhD in Over-Engineering
Thought y'all might want to see this. At KCR last October, I was fortunate to find an SOT who was giving up his license, so he was selling some toys to SOTs with no love letter required. Missed a couple of items that were spoken for already, but here is one of the two pieces I did get. Just came in last week. It was mixed parts, set up in A4 config, and I am going to swap in a few things and probably restore it to A6 spec. The jacket was not a match to the trunnion, wrong back plate, a Westie bolt with Izzy charging handle, Izzy top cover assembly, etc. Had the right cartridge stops messed with, as can be seen. Otherwise, the receiver itself was factory original with perhaps one minor rebuild marking. I'm certain every rivet is SG factory and the finish is original too. Most WWII A6s left Saginaw with A4 marking overstamped with the 6, as on this one. Serial range fits that pattern, from what I can tell. Not a bad score for a Postie price.
