CONDITION: Owned by an avid target shooter and all target shooters had to make adjustments to make the rifle “perfect”. The palm rest as stated is not orig, but the base is Winchester. The bore is excellent. Blue is thinning, especially where its been shot on a rest on the underside of the bbl and on the sharp edges. Stock finish on forearm and buttstock is considerably worn and probably could be upgraded considerably with a couple coats of wax. The under lever as stated does not fit correctly. As stated the helm buttplate has been modified. The stock is proud of the action and there is a small space between the action and the buttstock. 50594-67 (4,750-7,000) C&R; IVORY – Lot 4196
