    Synthetic or Weathermark?

    I'm looking at an all black MK V in .30 x .378, but don't know if it's a Synthetic or Weathermark. How do you tell? It has what looks like a factory brake.

    Thanks, Tom

    The right side of a Rem M-30 or a P-17 is unique. Floormetal is distinct also. A shot of the rt side and bottom of the action should do it.
