I'm really glad I've discovered this forum. I've been looking at an M48 in my local shop. Under the cosmoline, it appears to be a pretty nice rifle with matching numbers. But I've been reading about how some M48s have been pieced together from parts. Not that I would have a problem with this at the right price for a project gun. But it's priced for a "unissued" rifle. Are there any clues and/or stamps I should be looking for?
Thanks for your help - I suspect I might be spending some time here.
