Interesting rifle.  Any idea what that groove is for – top, rear of right side of the receiver?

By the way, I’d love to own that tang sight!

Have no idea on that grooved out section unless the prior owner had some kind of sight there.

That sight is a good one for sure.

Will have to go with the rifle.

Andy,

I am not so sure that it would be wise to spend much of your hard earned $$$ trying to fix that old SRC.  The serial number places the date of manufacture in January 1923… approximately 4-years before Winchester introduced Stainless Steel barrels. So. in addition to needing a correct replacement stock, the barrel is unlikely to be original to the receiver frame.  On the plus side, the Lyman No. 103 Micrometer Windguage sight is worth at least $500 all by itself.

Please say hello to Bob for me,

Bert

Thanks Bert, that helps me determine what to do and not do.  I will tell Bob hi for you.  He’s still going strong.
