Picked up this really minty 97 Riot shipped a few days after Pearl Harbor.  “42” dated barrel.

I can’t read the information on the CFM letter (picture is too small).  What is the serial number on your Riot Gun?

No US markings

The pictures should enlarge if you double click them. Im working Off an iPad so I’m not sure how to make them bigger in the thread.

When you send the pictures you have to make sure they have hundreds of kilobytes.  Usually there is a setting somewhere to select the file size.

These are so small they don’t expand and when I use alternate software they just get blurry.  I checked one of your pictures and it is only 4 KB.

I have no idea how Mike could make out the serial number?

Mike,

It does not enlarge. Instead, it remains thumbail sized.  Please send the picture to me at Win1885@msn.com

No idea either, my iPad amazes me. I can barely spell IT. Check your e-mail, Bert.

Mike, how did you get from 6.8 KB to 410?  You need to do this to the pictures.

in post # 1 I just selected the letter, it opened very small, clicked on the small photo and it opened a larger copy of the letter.  Seems like the attachment is a link to the original posting site @ post image.cc. Or maybe it’s just mimimized when opened the 1st time.

Thank you. I knew I wasn’t an IT whiz, didn’t even stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
