Description:

Standard sights, "LMR 5 53" barrel, "IHC" bolt and operating rod, "W.R.A." safety, trigger housing and hammer, and replacement early production "C 46025" milled trigger guard. A Federal Ordnance import mark has been added to the barrel on the right side just below the handguard, and the receiver heel shows the distinctly spaced "gap letter" style manufacturer's markings. Smooth pistol grip stock, with a faint "RA-P" stamp on the grip and checkered steel buttplate.

Fine, with 50% of the parkerized finish, showing areas of thinning, edge wear and scattered handling marks. Patches of shallow pitting are present, concentrated on the receiver. The sanded refinished stock is very good, with some light dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
