Congrats on the great find! I always thought those rifles were really neat! I would love to see pictures of the gas system if you get around to it!

I was referring to the one on Armslist.
He has the wood stocker.
Yours just makes me drool all over the keyboard :homerdrool::homerdrool::homerdrool:

Thanks for the pictures, what a neat rifle! Smith had been talking about making some, too bad they didn't.
