Well, I had to pull the trigger on this one, I know it has issues, refinished stock, notch cut in for the scope, modern scope and of course the buttpad, but overall I really liked this one, bluing looks good, parts are all there from what I can see, rifling is excellent, action is very smooth, no rust or corrosion and no import marks that I have found. I just don't see these in the wild by me and I got it for a shooter price, wondering if the mount is a repro or real, I can't find any markings on it. Any other observations good or bad? I haven't had a chance to study on these as much as I usually like to before I buy something so I took kind of a gamble. Hope I didn't get hosed.
