I recently bought an HVA action that is missing the serial number. I just disassembled it today, cleaned it up a little with some nitro solvent and I can't find a serial number on it. Was planning on using it to have a rifle built, now I am at a loss. I would like to find out if anyone knows if the manufacturer ever made some of these actions and did not stamp a serial number on them. Can I still have a gunsmith built me a rifle with it?
Here is a description of the action: Husqvarna Crown trademark and the word SWEDEN stamped on the top of the receiver ring.
Proofmark and word Nitro stamped on the flat under receiver ring behind the recoil lug, (missing serial number).
Left Receiver wall is stamped with HVA ACTION-MADE IN SWEDEN
Trigger guard magazine feels light, must be some sort of alloy material.
All of the stamped markings are deep and very visible. Bolt has a magnum bolt face, magazine box easily accomodates medium magnum cartridges. Please advise ? Thanks
