I’m sorry to say that this is a good news and not so good news situation. The good news is that you got more than your money’s worth. You would have no problem quickly and easily selling your new Enfield for more than the $315 you paid.I know its worth the $315 I paid, I dont know exactly how much more
This rifle appears to be in fantastic condition with only a light sanding
That’s a bit like saying that someone is in perfect health other than the cancer. If the stock has been sanded, even lightly, the rifle in question is not in fantastic condition. Likewise if the metal finish has been scoured with steel wool or any abrasive it’s not fair or accurate to describe the metal condition as decent.Metal condition is decent but worn, almost like someone scrubbed things with steel wool.
I think it tends to happen when folks buy 'the apple of their eye' and it turns out to be not quite what they thought it was, it is probably easier to remove the questions so that when the new potential buyer does some internet research they don;t see 'what a dog' it is.The 'shy original poster' strikes AGAIN.
How can we ever build up an experience base here if the original posters keep hiding their posts?
