They could not make it happen. They took pains to use the correct (reproduction) German scope, period correct ammo and there is just too much curved glass in the scope to deflect the bullet path. Good story though.
I thought the bullet through the scope "myth" was in response to the shot pulled off by Carlos Hathcock during the Vietnam War. I also recall one of their experts managing the shot using an AP round. I know it got revisited a couple of times, so it may have originated from the scene in Saving Private Ryan. Just a little confused is all.

I am very impressed. Cherry? Are you sure? I'm a woodworker also. Doesn't look like cherry in the picture. Very, very, nice collection! How long did it take to put all this together? The M-1 has the milled trigger guard of an early model, but the sights are the later post WWII model. The 1911 has an adjustable trigger. I've only been a collector for 10 years and I don't know much about these fine weapons except that they are thrilling to hold and look at and appreciate. I used the M-14, the M-16, M-79 grenade launcher, 1911 pistol, and a large assortment of communist stuff, French and German weapons during my year in Vietnam. We will never see Mil-Surp stuff at the CMP from this era. It's a unique time we are enjoying. The CMP will eventually run out, they will never receive any M-14's, so what guys like you and I have will be the end I'm afraid. Besides being a good investment, it's a thrilling hobby. Black Walnut and blued ( or Parkerized) steel will be history before long. Hold on and pass it down.

It is a old M1D stock. SA open box not shown. Cheek pad screw holes on buttstock bottom. I used to have some custom 1911s, sold all and stay with US marked. well some others also. LOL
