I have a SA 5.91 with a 8/55 barrel this rifle has 4 T stamps and was proof fired twice, why was a original rec/barrel/bolt proof fired a second time. Why was a hardly used rifle sent for rebuild? Currently the T/E is under 1.5 and the M/E well under 1.
I know with the T stamp on the barrel the rifle was targeted, my rifle is T stamped on the op-rod saddle barrel for passing the op-rod tilt test. The lower left corner on the reciever just under the stock line, why here? also on the underside of the bolt. I can explain the two but the other two T stampings have me scratching my head?
Could my rifle have been selected to go to Camp Perry for the National Matches? There are quite a few NM rifles in this ser number block but in my rifles case I think its wishfull thinking my rifle could have been targeted as a posible NM rifle, in the end it didn't meet NM standards.
My rifle is a 12/65 LEAD rebuild what was rebuilt I have no clue eveything is correct but, a SA 7790722 op-rod and a NM nonhooded aperture and a Overton Burch replacement stock, can someone explain that?
If only they could tell there own story?
