    Default What do I have here?

    I was given this rifle by my uncle. It was issued to him while in the Canadian Air force in the early 1950's. It never seen action since the Korean War ended before he got to go.

    So What do I have here? I would like to know a little about it and is it worth anything?

    excuse my lack of knowledge, but what do you mean by "sportered"?

    I know he put it in a closet when he was discharged back in the 50's and never used it.
    It was taken out 3 times since then, 2 of those times he brought it to my dad to have it cleaned and the 3 time to give it to me.

    And it does have a cleaning kit in the stock.

    Thanks for your feedback

    Thanks a lot Dave for the info.
    To bad my uncle is no longer with use because you just raised so many more questions I would have for him.

    I assume being modified the way it is, it not worth much?
