Blade front sight on the Cutts-marked compensator and fixed peep rear sights, with a smooth barrel, horizontal handguard, post and drum selector/safety switches, matching numbered trigger housing and quick-detach buttstock. A 1928 pattern bolt with Blish lock and oiler assembly is installed. Provenance: The Al Walker Collection
