I think you have it all figured out, I bought three of those that were bolted to a wall in a restaurant for 50 years. I attempted to take all the best parts and make one complete rifle and sell off the rest of the parts. My problem (that you do not have) is I did not have a decent stock. I ended up giving up and selling all parts. The funny thing is- those stocks are crazy rare but they?re not really in demand. It will shoot commercial ammo but unfortunately the rifle isn?t worth too much. Neat piece of history though.
