    I just cleaned all the grease out last week so I know it’s not that, I’ll have to check the pin again. It looked ok but I really didn’t pay that much attention...

    Take the bolt apart it maybe packed with grease. Or someone snipped off the firing pin tip.

    I figured as much, ball park 500 maybe? I only paid 300 for it, wondering if I got a good deal?

    I have a Winchester just like your Remington. WWII rebuilds are not worth what a straight WW1 is worth. That said a WWII rebuild is a leget WWII combat weapon. It documented
    1917 were issued to US rear troops and artillery units in North Africa in the beginning of the war.

    Here are some photos, I hope you can see, but there is a JA and looks like a little bomb on front of barrel, a P under hand grip, and 3GM-k on stock as well.

    Receiver ring is stamped with makers name and serial number. A far as the barrel, maker and date stamped behind rear sight on the barrel.
