Can anyone tell me if this magazine tube holder is original or more likely changed out , I know the sling swivel is not factory but not sure about the tube holder , it looks to be to large ?Screenshot_20240406-083835.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot_20240406-082421.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot_20240406-082415.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot_20240406-082329.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot_20240406-082405.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot_20240406-082353.pngImage Enlarger

Chris,

The magazine tube retaining ring is not original.  It was apparently installed to add the sling stud.

I’m wondering if I should try to find a period correct retaining ring and lose the swivels or just leave it as is ?

Thanks Bert  , one search I did said 1941 and Cabela’s said 1938 , but they also said it had a 26″ barrel and a plastic butt pad . The guy I talked to confirmed it was a 24″ barrel and the steel butt plate .
