Just bought a .30 Carbine 3 Screw unfired in the box buddy found in a gun store so I bought sight unseen. Post pictures when I pick up next weekend.

Just ONE small word of caution, well two actually! :D

EAR PROTECTION!!!!!!!!!!! Never touch off one of those puppies
without adequate protection, trust me, I did it once under a metal
overhanging roof at our club range thinking I'd use up the last of
a box of shells and my ears rang for days. The fireball in the late
afternoon winter day looked like it was as large as a watermelon.
Gun was great to shoot WHEN I had my muffs on though, deadly
accurate with almost no perceptible recoil. Good find at NIB too.

According to the owner he said it was a 1968 or 69 so sounds like one of the early ones. Has the owners manual and one other card in the box. Can't wait.

Yep. There were some 9000+ non-prefix guns made in 1968. After that they were all 50-prefix guns up thru 1973 when the New Models came out and they went to the 51-prefix.

Neat guns.

:D

Finally got it. Turned out to be a pre - serial number. Unfired and box is marked to match serial number. I'm pretty stoked.
