    forced matching is when used parts are reassigned new numbers. for example my latest mosin the receiver, bolt and magazine are original matching numbers the buttplate has another number xxed out and the matching number restamped on it. hope it helps some!!!!:D :D :D

    Bob, it's kinda like when you enlisted in the Marines-you were forced to match everyone else. HTH.
