Need help with id.
It is a sporterized version. My uncle got it in the 1950s i was told thru some nra program.It would take close examination to determine the originality of it, assuming its still in military dress. There're several for sale most all the time with prices that may or may not be realistic. If it's been altered in any way, the value takes a nose dive a long way down.
Just curious--Barrel date 44?
