Bought this one a while ago for $1875.00 off Gunbroker, 100% matching, 100% Izhevsk. It was "phosphated" a long time ago, and several negative posts here (Gunboards) at the time may have kept others from bidding on it, or kept the price from going any higher. The bore is lightly frosted, but the rifling is strong down the entire length of the barrel, and the action is as smooth as silk. I've test fired it with 47 grain practice ammo, just to say I've fired it. Glad I picked it up.
