I paid $500 for a matching Remington barrel/receiver. Hope to one day get an R marked.

As the de-facto was a post WWI refurbish (some escaped but unusual) that's part of the history.

Fun part was to go through it, ID what was Remington and what was not and start building a list to get it to all Remington. Stock will be the hardest.

Best sights of any gun until the 1903 A3 put the peep on the rear (K98, SMLE etc all had that forward of the receiver sight that is ok but not anywhere near as good as the 1917 type peep.

Funny to see you have the bayonet. I found one when I had mine ordered and got it. Great character and the price was decent for that too.
