    Interesting. First example I've seen. From your picture The area above the eagle appears to be undisturbed and consequently the eagle wasn't part of this nitro proof. Presumably Steve or Jim will have more information to post.

    The rifle is being held for me at the moment while I sort out the paperwork. Once I have it I'll remove the stock and see if perhaps the eagle was stamped elsewhere? Thanks for the answers!

    Default My "GUESS"

    Light strike of the Proof die not properly held, (tilted away from the Eagle) thus not imprinting the Eagle.

    Only logical explanation I can fathom.

    Accidental or deliberate? Interesting to speculate. Who knows?

    If you look at it with a loop or magnifying glass are there any traces of the Eagle?

    The gun does not look refinished in the pictures and removal of the full proof would certainly have necessitated that.

    That is my first thought, also. The "N" appears shallow enough to agree with that. Placement (location of mark) is standard, and I know of no other explanation for it to be "topless" here.

    Not sure if this is still active but I have recently acquired one of these with a serial # 228564. It has been modified to 22 magnum and given a new stock. The bolt spring is worn out causing misfires, is there anywhere I can get a new spring or am I going to have to make my own?
