I should add that this NRA sporter is in the DCM NRA sales list and I do have a letter coming on it which will tell us who originally bought the rifle and where he lived. This may be a clue as to where the S-man lived as I doubt that someone would have sent his stock to some far off place just to have it checkered. Michael had once said he thought the S-man might be from the mid-west because many of those he had on his list were in the mid-west but many of those on my latest list have come from all around the country although the newest on my list is in WI.
