Re: trial rifles

Al, assuming my rifle is a type II, which I guess it is, then could the presence of a M68 rod on it be explained by parts switching at the unit level? Then could parts switching also explain why my type II rifle has a M68 rear band? These parts are certainly easily exchanged. Dick has already explained that the presence of a rod retaining spoon in my stock was because there was no reason to remove it as well as from any of the others that already had them in place. However, the M68 rod on my rifle had been on the rifle for some time as the muzzle shows the definite "ring" produced by long term usage of a single shouldered rod. Also, could you please tell me just where the ski slope contour on the stock is located? Until I can purchase your two books and your DVD, I'm without any pictures to study. Winter hay for our 18 horses, getting the old rundown John Deer repaired, new snow chains for the worn rear tires, paying for a new furnace to replace the old broken down one, etc, etc, keeps me temporarily broke. It's a Good Life though! :)
