Re: A pic and question about my 81

Hard to tell from the small picture but looks like a nice rifle. With the buttplate overhanging, and the stock altered I don't see how adding a recoil pad would deduct from the value.

Sounds like your 81 is one fine shooter!

Re: Guess what I found? (now with pics)

The notch in your forearm with the exposed serial number is a chip out of your forearm. Originally it would have been covered up and could have only been seen with the forearm removed. The serial number of the receiver and the barrel assembly should always match, that part is correct.

Yes, the trip lever (otherwise known as the magazine indicator assembly) when manually depressed will release the bolt/bolt carrier to its forward position. The bolt/bolt carrier should always lock back after the last round.

Hey Loren, I think it just depends on the rifle. I don't think there's a set amount of money the Krieger adds to the value. Lot of factors play into it, scope mounts, tapped receivers, recoil pads, etc. An extra magazine like you're talking about certainly adds more value too.

Re: 81 fit and finish

Fit and finish on later production 81's tended to be lackluster compared to earlier rifles. From what i've seen, you wont find a better fit/finish than on the earliest of Model 8's (those that haven't been tampered with). Your rifle looks completely normal. Nice find! The markings are inspector marks.

This allows the clip to pivot as if on a gimbal, making it next to impossible to neatly charge the magazine.
