This is a Third Model carbine version of Parry W. Porter's distinctive turret rifles (approximately 680-1225 serial number range). This is an unusual example given the low serial number and the lack of Porter markings. It has off-set blade and notch sights, "6." on the bottom of the barrel and other components, a smooth buttstock with "AK" carved into the right side and a military style flat buttplate. A "GDM" stamp is marked at the toe. Includes a leather sling. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Good with dark brown and gray patina, mild pitting, scrapes on the right side of the action, and general mild wear overall. The turret cover is absent. The stock is also good and has some thin cracks in the butt, numerous scrapes and dings, and some small flakes. Mechanically fine.
