    yeah I got that particular rifle in 67 or thereabouts from a friend. Round about 1961-62 I used to buy rifles by mail order and have a Brit Enfield 303 and a US Carbine among others then JFK was shot with a mail order rifle and that put the kabosh on that. I'll try to find the catalog and take a picture of the page (I still have the catalog somewhere) its good fot a few laughs when you see the prices.
