"Rifle is from an old collection". That just means that the markings are old too... doesn't mean they weren't added by the vet's brother-in-law in 1955 when they "spiffed up" the rifle as a favor after the vet let it get rusty in the garage. No provenance, ALWAYS buy the gun. Bullet marks and shrapnel have a forensic aspect that you can ID. Burns? Could have been a house fire as likely as a bunker... unless there is the outline of a hand or something. This one under discussion is a shiny, graffiti covered eyesore with zippo interest to me. That's good news for lots of folks because it means less competition to buy... but guess what? It also means a LOT of folks also won't be interested in chasing it later on if you have to sell it.

Can't say I don't agree Doss... but the rifle in this post with the history of "came from an old collection" is several owners removed from provenance or even second hand contact with original owner.

IN Seoul you can buy squid right off grill tops on the street. Comes like a bag of fries with all the tentacles sticking out of the top. Half the bag ends up stuck between your teeth!
