Here's a class III  1890 deluxe with engraving and... Well you look and see . I would love to have this little 22, but I'm afraid I'll lose a wife in the transaction.

Vince,  don't worry, go for it.  Your wife will surely understand and give her full support.

Damn. I was all set to buy it but I live in CA. Suppressor rules it out. Crap. That’s the only thing stopping me, I’m not married.

I would suggest just treading lightly or your wonderful wife may invest in a nice little pearl handled 6 round "silencer"!!!

That little gem sold for $126,500 plus the juice. Thanks for all your suggestions on going for it. Wife only asked once why I was chuckling.

Notice that the proof marks are referred to as being standard, likely indicating that the barrel proof mark is not offset.

I didn't like that gun. Couldn't get past the crudely installed marlin tang sight (added holes).

It's a beautiful and unique piece for certain.  I'm thinking it's a case where the buyer just had to have it, had very deep pockets, and the 1920 era Maxim Silencer played a very big part in the auction price. 

One thing that gets my attention at this point in time is the distance between scope block centers.  They certainly appear to be 7.2 on center, or within 1/16ths of an inch or so.  This brings to mind notes that Steve Norton mentioned the other day in his sniper-thread, about the Marines being the first to use the subject distance for obtaining minute of angle adjustments during the WWI era.  Can anyone here shed any light as to when this distance was first used aside from the statement of fact that Steve made?

I'm thinking 33 or 34 . My earliest M52's are 6" and my 1934 rifle has the 7.2 spacing. The original spacing for the A5 was 6". When they went to the 7.2 spacing, they also changed the blocs to the Fecker type. The later scopes will not work on the original Winchester bases. Big Larry
