M70 Type II Rifle, SN870

M70 Type II Rifle, SN870

This is a very nice M70 Type II rifle. It has all the correct parts for the second version of the M70 rifle. For example, it has the double shouldered rod with no cannelures, the M70 rear sight moved about 1/2 inch from the receiver, produced by mofifing a CW musket stock (3 cartouches), spoon in stock, and the boxed L firing proof. Type II stocks are commonly found with new stocks and only one cartouche in the rear of the stock flat. I believe the 870 is an inventory stamp and not a Springfield serial number. The font is not correct, and the stamp was not rolled into the metal. The bore in the rifle is excellent, no pitting or dark spots. However, the edges of the rifling are slightly rounded as if the the gun fired jacketed ammo. A very collectible rifle.

$1850 + S/H
