I would think if the rifle was a G&H, RIA would have said something, they didn't even suggest it might be. The front sight looks Sedgley, no flutes, and the swivel studs look like pre-war Remingtons, regardless, a very nice rifle.

Did anyone notice the trigger mechanism? It looks like a set trigger.

Tim in Pa, great attention to detail, I don't know how many times I looked at that and missed the trigger.
The pictures aren't great, but I think it could be a trigger like in the tread below

I'm not a fan of full length stocks, but the more I look at that rifle, the more I like it. But I do think the swivel studs would have to go.

The swivel studs look like the wide studs that are characteristic of early customs and are compatible with Winchester Super Grade swivels. I can't remember the brand name, but I have seen them in their original boxes that identify them by brand. I would not trash them. I have them on several high grade customs.

Just my 2 cents, but the close grip, forward comb nose, checkering, cheek piece, and overall styling of the stock make me think it was originally converted to a sporting rifle by Sedgley. Then sometime later I think it was sent to G&H for the scope and bolt handle mod. Somewhere along the line someone added the set trigger, possibly at the same time that the later knurled cocking piece was added.

Whatever the story, I really like it and would enjoy spending a cool morning sitting in the squirrel timber with it.
