Ransom paid....

Got it home, have not shot it yet. Looked in my 52 book and it claims the C variant was discontinued in 1961 at about serial number 104400, but there are no definitive factory records. This one is number 1049**, so well after the suspected discontinuance, but still within the numbers listed for 1961 manufacture, so it is one of the last of it's breed. Looking it over, put an empty case in the chamber to check function and the lock time seemed really slow. Pulled the bolt and it has dried cosmoline still in it. This thing shows almost no sign of having been fired, so cannot have many rounds through it at all. I am enamored so far.
