    SA 20381 on CMP Auction Site

    Am I seeing things or is this receiver without the 7th-round fix?

      The person who now takes the photos for the auction site is terrible. The previous person took better pictures and at different angles that would have shown the rib.

            Probably, but it would be a shame to spin that barrel off to do a restoration. I have 20435, which is also unmodified. Interesting that those two receivers being so close in serial number are both unmodified. I have a couple others that are also close to that serial, which are also unmodified. Makes me wonder if there was some gap in the building up of the ribs for some reason.

            If I were to win that one I'd build a beautiful rifle retaining its 7.62mm caliber and definitely put some rounds through it!

            Good luck to whomever bids!!

              Check the barrel markings. It appears to be a Navy conversion by H&R. Barrel is a SA 5-49. Barrel was originally chambered in 30-06. H&R converted to 7.62 using a chamber sleeve.

                I understand there were problems with sleeved barrels!

                  Sometimes the sleeve would eject with a fired round and if you didn't notice it you were then shooting 7.62x51 in a 30-06 barrel.
