Interesting. Is there any way to verify the provenance? There appear to be conflicts between Paul’s description and the description on GB.

Maybe I can get a Stimulus grant to buy it. ;)

The rifle in the GB ad looks like the one shown in a photo in Peter Senich’s “The Complete Book of U.S. Sniping”. The photo was credited to Don Stoehr, a former TRW employee.
