There is a pic of one in the Madis book but it is not close-up or clear and there is a rumor circulating it is not original.

Yes, there is some info that would be helpful. I sent you an email the same day you posted but it must not have gone through. I am sending another now.

Recently, I took some better photos of my old and treasured 56 with the stainless steel barrel. I posted them here somewhere. Let me add them to this thread.

".........."

no words to describe : )
I'm guessing that is a 10 shot 'SHORT' clip? [never seen one of those, either!].

Here are a few photos of Snatchmn1's Model 56 he sent me. He has more photos that he can email direct if you are curious about his nice looking 56.

Regards,

It's a mystery to me why these didn't sell.

That 56 is just gorgeous.

Is this gun considered to be one of the super rare "fancy sporting" model 56's?

You're right, Alan, that's a 10-shot short magazine, original to the rifle. I had not realized it was at all unusual.
