This is an example of a "U.S. Air Force" M4 bolt action survival rifle. These rifles were developed after World War II and were intended as a survival rifle for downed fighter pilots and bomber crews. They were not really intended as a defensive weapon but more for hunting and survival. They saw service well into the late 1950s and early 1960s with B-52 bomber crews. Manufactured by H&R at the Worcester, MA plant, the rifle has a blade front sight and Lyman 55-H adjustable rear peep sight, matching numbers on the barrel and receiver, two-line Worcester address on the left side of the receiver, "RIFLE, SURVIVAL, CAL .22, M4 (HORNET CARTRIDGE)/U.S. PROPERTY" on the left side of the frame, and telescoping wire buttstock. Modern fixed flash hider. Includes its correct metal case, two extra magazines, one sealed 9-round box of .22 Hornet (M65), one empty .22 Hornet shell and part of an article cut out of Firearms News (volume 71, issue 13).
Very fine as modified, retains 95% original parkerized finish with some light freckling. Pinned/welded fixed flash hider on barrel as mentioned above. Mechanically excellent.
