    Is this special ? what is it?

    This is one on my retired buddies finds yesterday. I seen the paperwork. He gave $1200.00 for all of it with a seal bag of South African 308 battle pack. No b/s . He is interested in the ink stamp and serial number. Also the told him the scopes come on the rifles from the factory. ???? Any ideas on that?

    It is a factory inspection stamp similar to, and sometimes confused with, the government acceptance stamp. It doesn’t include the additional characters of the government stamp.

    Mark Westrom, ArmaLite`s owner at the time, was a retired Army Ordnance officer. He did it as a nod to the Old Govt acceptance stamp/cartouche and as has been stated to differentiate factory built guns from parts guns.

    $1200 for that combo is a steal, I would keep the rifle together for sure.

    I dont think that scope is original, but everything else looks correct for a (T) target model

    They didn’t scope those like that from the factory whoever blew that smoke was silly. Our ol buddy roberto had one just like that and it was stupid accurate. We got to get off our cans every other Saturday and go looking or buy a van and chauffeur the retired trio around.

    In all fairness One of my buddies that is finding these is a long time rail road employee. All those guys at the rail road know he has a ffl. So when they get laid off (happens a lot with them) They sell him guns to make the bills. He gets some great deals.
