Finally after looking for awhile got one.
After your long search it brought this to my old musicians mind that you had finally found your Holy Grail of U.S. battle rifles ............. :mrgreen:

"Carry on,
You will always remember
Carry on,
Nothing equals the splendor !
Now your lifes no longer empty, surely heaven waits for you !"


From the song "Carry on Wayward Son" from the 1976 Kansas album "Leftoverture"
ROLL TIDE !

It was the first big bore rifle I shot moving up from small bore target shooting competitively...open sights on both.And they laughed when the 14 year old kid got his thumb jammed in the receiver trying to load the thing. Only took once. I was immediately impressed at how it shot at 300 yards.
If you drink, don't drive. Don't even putt.
