The rifle issued to me in the USAF for Security Augmentee Duty was a '60's era piece that some poor b@stard probably carried "In Country" before it came back stateside with him. You could make out the word "Mattel" behind the heat shields inside the forarms and under the buttplate. The grip had no markings but I suspect it might have been made by Mattel, too. All of my .22lr only builds are built on Nodak Spud slicksides as you described; no forward bolt assist and no fence. All triangle forends, smooth buttstocks. One is Mattel equipped, too.
