    I agree the covers are hens teeth, next to impossible to find.. only seen one, the one time I went to Louisville, in 2006-2007, Mauserbill had a buddy that was giddy over finding one, rightfully so...

    I didn't even note the RB swivel missing, focused upon the markings I guess. The crack is not an issue for anyone i know, that is as common as not having one, I wouldn't have mentioned it, someone...
