Default Winchester M43 22 Hornet

I purchased this rifle at a Auction in Marcelene sometime about 8 years ago for $700 and it's been neglected in my Gun Room but not anymore. I stripped it down and found a crack through the bridge between the trigger and magazine well. Very odd in that the hole is for the forward trigger guard which bears no pressure duty. The pressure screws are the main mounting screw in front of the mag well and the rear TG screw which attaches to the rear of the action much like a 1903 or M98 Mauser. The barrel in 23 inches long with 4 grooves and a one in sixteen twist chamber is .224, born on date 1951. I mounted a Vortex Crossfire II with Burris rings. The gun was also offered in a deluxe version that was checkered for $10 more. Range Report when it quits raining.
