Wild Bill, I spoke to my friend today. He said that that the AMU was building on the Remington 700 actions at the time. The Remmys were in .308 caliber, BUT my friend wanted a .30-06. After not being able to dissuade him, reluctantly they built it on the FN Commercial action. He has been in contact with the current staff @ the AMU. They actually know the person that built the weapon. They are in the process of contacting him and putting the two of them together. Hopefully he will remember this rifle and be able to ID the trigger. BTW--NOBODY @ AMU currently, after examining the pics, had a clue ! ! !

I may be wrong, but the trigger bears a striking resemblance to an early Remington 788 trigger. AMU may have modified the housing a bit to precipitate fitting...but I'm almost sure it looks like the early 788...keep in mind, I haven't seen one in years.

Welcome to the forum, Silhouette. Thanks for your input. You're the 1st person to offer a definitive opinion. I'll post what we learn from the actual builder @ AMU if my friend does indeed make contact with him.......

Thanks one eye joe! I had to chuckle at your user name...seems we could have crossed paths. I don't know if your name is a play on one eyed jacks, or if you lost an eye. I lost mine in a firefight just south of Quang Tre back in 1971 part way through my third tour (lost an ear at the same time). I was 5th SF assigned to I Corps who in turn assigned me to army infantry and artillery in Quang Tre province...anyway....appreciate your service!

Welcome home brother, and thank you for YOUR service. I didn't lose my eye violently as you did, BUT I lost all my vision in my right eye due to my exposure to the herbicide Agent Orange. I suffer several auto-immune system disorders related to this exposure, one of them being MS (which the loss of vision is related to). I've lost most of my mobility in the limbs on the right side of my body, so I've had to train myself to shoot left handed. I'm gettin' around, and doin' OK however. We old soldiers are tough, as YOU WELL KNOW......(BTW--I MUST tell you that I find your posts VERY interesting and informative, and obviously based on a wealth of personal experience. I'm glad to have you amongst us...)

Thank you for the kind words friend! I'm really sorry to hear about your situation...my wife has MS, but it seems to have stopped it's progression...her feet and lower legs as well as her hands are partially to mostly numb, but she's one tough cookie...not to mention a fine woman and a damned fine looking woman! I guess you don't live a lot of years without picking up something along the way...I'll try to share that with those willing to listen. Thanks again...I feel very comfortable here!
