Re: Cut Down Rifles

Hi Pete, Al Frasca has written very informative books on these arms, as well as one written by Earnst and Waite. In my opinion all cut down rifles are fakes. None of these, to my knowledge were altered at the Armory. Any rifle that has been cut down to carbine length was done after the piece left Government service. Look for remnants of the ram rod groove in your stock. Regards, Ken
