Hi Forum, 

Hoping for insight on a Gunbroker listing, please see pictures 5 and 6. In Picture 5, there is a whitish metallic sheen under the 3-position bolt safety, but on picture 6, and others, there is no metallic sheen and the bolt looks normal. Any idea what is going on here? Are these pictures of the same firearm?

I have included the two pictures of the allegedly the same firearm below, more in the listing page. 

Thank you

Suspect it’s just a trick of the different angle of light in that photo. Or if not that, a spot of grease?   Looks like a straight & very clean gun to me.

Looks to me to be the same rifle. Angle of second pic is just enough to catch number on the breech, and blowing it up and with these old welders eye balls the numbers appear to be the same.  Ask seller for some more pics.
