Just in case this rifle shows up again, Buyer Beware!  It is a FAKE!

Bert,

Model 71 special serial # 12388 up for auction this weekend.  Appears to have bolt peep sight, can’t tell the barrel length from photo.  Do you have it in survey already?  If no, I’ll provide additional info after I see it.

No, I do not have it listed yet. Which auction is it in?

Bert,

This is follow up on Model 71 serial # 12388 special rifle.  Sold at Owings Auction, Clear Brook, VA today (12 DEC) for $2.2k.  Special rifle, long tang, 24″ barrel, bolt peep.  Looked real nice in single photo on web (right side view)…however upon personal look I noted left side of receiver D&T for 4 scope mount holes with filler screws and compass embedded in left side of butt stock.  I passed.

What is the serial number?  Can you provide some pictures of it?
