    I had one but traded it for my 5.8 SA Garand. It was a high number RIA mixmaster as well with a near mint SA replacement barrel. I picked it up at a Metcalf show a couple years back for $400. It was a National Match clone that had a Lyman 48S rear match sight, Lyman 17A front globe sight, and was drilled and tapped for an Unertl Super Target Scope. It also had a glass bedded Keystone C stock, adjustable Timney trigger, and an original 1918 Hoyt marked 1907 sling (sling is currently installed on my Enfield repro sniper). The rear military sight had been removed, the lower band was a stamped version from an A3, and the bolt was a mix of parts with non-matching finishes. For an extra $100 I replaced the lower band with a correct milled version, replaced the buttplate with a milled checkered version, polished the bolt, replaced the rear sight, windage knob, cocking piece, bolt sleeve, and safety with NOS matching parts. I also refinished the stock with Fiebing's medium brown dye, pure dark tung oil that Ronny gave me, and Tom's 1/3 wax mix.

    If Sgt York had had that one, he might have really made a name for himself.

    I'm assuming that it will darken as the oil begins to oxidize. The SB 600 flash on my Nikon is bright enough that it makes the color appear lighter and redder than it actually is. The stock was poly'd before I refinished it so I definitely didn't harm an original finish.

    Here's a picture of the stock with the poly clearcoat prior to being refinished...

    Here's a picture of the stock (before wax) without the flash washing it out...
