My new to me 43. Serial 31571 22 hornet that is factory tapped and I suspect an early one at that. Has a Weaver 2.5 scope. Not sure if I can upload pics here but happy to forward photos if required.
Your Model 43 was factory drilled & tapped to mount a scope, but only the receiver frame rings. Your rifle has also had the barrel drilled & tapped, which is something that Winchester never did on the Model 43 rifles. Pictures can be sent to my email address – [email protected]
