How is it numbered inside the barrel channel and under the handguard?
The receiver may have been buffed and re-blued but much clearer pictures are needed.
Also, is there a number on the bolt stop lever?
If the rifle is original and not re-blued and all the serial numbers including the stock are original and not altered or faked then you have a very rare and collectable rifle.
Keep in mind that there are many fakes floating around out there and new fakes are in constant production (some pretty good ones too) so in order to offer solid opinions, we need high quality close up pictures of EVERY serial number on all the bits and some intermediate distance pictures, say one third of the rifle at a time, of both sides.

Why wait for them..
It's been buffed and blued and had the serial number "altered" IMHO.
To me, the number font looks modern and it should not be numbered on both the barrel AND receiver.
Again, good pics would reveal all, right quick.
If the bore is good and it shoots straight it's better than 98% of R/C's.
The price was in the ballpark as well.
Hard to tell from the pics but that cleaning rod may be real (which is close to a $50 piece).
