    Default BCD 4 t block

    I picked up a really nice DSM trainer this year and an early f block BCD 4, finally found a weekend without snow/rain/shuttling the kiddo's to events or practices! I'm still getting the swing of a new camera, trying to get the lighting right but I thought these pics came out pretty good. I've been looking to add a BCD for a while and picked this one up off Gunbroker. The "f" on the barrel is mostly below the woodline but is there when disassembled. It's has an FN barrel with e/140 proof which is a bit less common for BCD but otherwise I think a pretty typical BCD for that year. Any comments or feedback are appreciated, I'm always learning when I pick up a rifle that's a new maker for me.

    Thanks, Nick

    Nice rifle, but I believe it is a "t" block. I think "f" blocks were numbered on the receiver ring while "t" blocks were numbered on the left of the barrel shank. Here is a link with photos of both ("f" and "t") bcd 4 letter blocks:

    Also, to the best of my knowledge, "f" blocks had numbered triggerguards and "t" blocks had unnumbered triggerguards. Your rifle has a later type unnumbered triggerguard. Here's another link which shows a nice bcd 4 "f" block:

    Thanks guys, I almost hesitate to say I did look over the BCD script style lettering and was sure it was an "f"🍰 Wish I could change the thread title, Pisgahs links show it is clearly a "t". But either way still very happy with the rifle, has all the hallmarks of BCD part numbering with the letters for the subcontractors. Pictures didn't come out clearly so I didn't include but the stock channel is letter and number stamped and the handguard is number stamped.

    Yep, that's correct, my picture drifted at the end but it is a 43.

    Thanks, Nick

    I was lucky enough to have this one in hand and the condition and bluing is amazing... The BCD product was anything but second rate for sure.. Nick you posted everything less the barrel # with letter block this may help...

    Done. Thread title modified. I am going to sticky it also. It is an excellent example.
