    These extra wide rib receivers have been around for almost twenty years, not many found (approx 10 to 12) and most have been modified so it is a bonus to find an original. Early serial numbers are 36733 and 37964 and run into the mid 40K. Mine is 42593 which the photos show. There is not any really good information available concerning reason for the extra wide rib.

        Beautiful receiver.
        Does it look to have been annealed or is it just my screen?

          I could be wrong, but don't think any of the extra wide rib receivers with original low guide ribs were found with anneal color

                How do you guys get the heads up on upcoming auctions?
                Did you see this correct grade gap letter IHC? Stock is a tad rough for a correct grade.

                    For as long as these receivers have been around (almost twenty years now) not one single article about them in any publication.
