Mounted with uncheckered, straight grain American walnut with rifle forearm 8-3/8″ long and straight stock with crescent buttplate. While these special order short rifles were available to the general public it has been this cataloger’s experience that the majority of them were ordered and used by the movie industry. Most of the movie industry short rifles were made up from left over parts and frequently show unusual configurations, however that is not the case here. This rifle is completely orig in all ways & remains as ordered. PROVENANCE: Woody Frey Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus, all orig. Bbl, magazine tube & forend cap retain about 99% plus crisp, orig blue. Front sight has a small ding on the top edge. Receiver retains about 95% crisp, orig blue with the loss area on the left front edge from flaking, not wear and that area is now a dark patina. Lever, hammer & buttplate retain about 99% crisp, orig blue with one small spot of flaking on the buttplate. Wood is sound with 1 or 2 small mars in the finish with no other visible flaws and retains virtually all of its crisp, orig factory finish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore, appears to be new & unfired. 4-48446 JR222 (5,500-7,500)
