    Pictures of receivers 38936, 41697 and 49155 all revision 1

    Here are some pictures of 3 receivers I purchased. I am hoping RCS and Bubba1 would be able to point out any nuances of these receivers. I am aware that 38936 and 41697 have wide guide ribs and have the 7th round mod done and 49155 has an "extra" guide rib with no 7th round mod but anything else can better be explained Im sure by the advanced collectors. I would appreciate any and all education on these. Thank you in advance.

    38936 has a little more worn finish than the other two but I like it, it has that been there done that look.

    I use to track the serial numbers on these revision 1 receivers with the extra wide rib, lowest number that I found is 36733 and the receiver was corrected. this receiver was owned by Johnny Peppers who is also known for his August 1940 rifle (56745) which had the data sheet in Duff's WW2 book. Duff changed the data sheet to show a follower arm with a bevel but it actually had the flat back without bevel follower arm.

    Most of these receivers with the extra wide rib had the correction to high ribs, my 42593 has the low ribs and it came from the CMP auction years ago. it is excellent condition and restored to gas trap configuration as I had parts left over. It looks good with the SPG no trap stock but the barrel, keystone spring, ferrule with lip, front sight are repro. I have yet to find a complete rifle with the extra wide ribs, it would appear most of them came out of the CMP as receivers. My photos show 41159 with low ribs and 42593 with extra wide low ribs Click image for larger version

      Very nice. Im still up in the air on the best way to move forward with building them. Obviously gas trap is not an option at this time.
