The condition of the rifle is very good and fully original. Perhaps with the only exception being the scope itself. The bluing only shows wear around some of the hard edges on the bottom metal and on the barrel band. The only cosmetic metal condition flaw is a patch of old pitting the size of a dime on the bottom of the barrel in front of the forend. The stock has a beautiful original satin oil finish. There is no damage to the stock other than normal marks from use. The worst of which is 4 or 5 indentations in the right side under the extractor port and what looks like a zipper indentation/scratch in the right side of the butt. All other marking is minor.
Bore is excellent.
Price Reduced to $5,600 shipped to FFL or C&R.
