    This rifle showed up in a picture of mine in the Hunting section and I was asked for some better pictures:

    It looks pretty nice from here!

    But upon closer examination :(

    It has a lot of excess holes, but it shoots GREAT especially with the 220gr. bullets for which it was designed and surprisingly, with Federal Fusion Lites, inside of 100yds that is. It does have a VERY early serial number:

    It's a 1904 action (maker is under the 'scope base and I've forgotten it!) and a1905 RIA barrel.

    Thanks for the interest, MP

    Does it have the cut out for the Pedersen Device on the other side of the receiver?
