New title: Long range rifle?

Thanks Tom. I should have used the term "long range rifle" since it's clearly not one of the marksman rifles and I never thought it was. I ain't that stupid! My mistake. I read the description of range rifles on this site, and seemingly this one matches, except for the special markings. Where would their special marks (H/G/R or HG) be located on the barrel? Same place as the normal VPN? Note that I could not find any such marks on this rifle. The previous owner was a reputable collector and had 300 or so guns. He died suddenly and now the family is disposing of the guns which they don't want. I kind of doubt that he would be claiming something totally false. He wrote notes on tags attached to his guns, and this note clearly states that its a rare Kelton rifle. But who knows maybe he goofed. Thanks again, Ned
