This Ruger retains 98%+ of the matte-blue refinish and about 96% of the original factory wood finish. It was originally shipped as a .223 Varmint gun. Wayne Merrier, a local rifle-smith, re-barreled the gun with a Shilen unit in 6.5X55 Swedish Mauser and did a wonderful trigger job on it. the barrel was cut to 21" and target crowned. He also replaced the factory butt plate with a new Decelerator pad. That is the only work done on the stock. The rifle shoots Hornady Light Magnum 129 grain SST cartridges into an inch at 100 meters and into less than two inches at 200 meters. The barrel has fired 88 rounds(the brass ships with the gun). 12 factory loaded rounds of Hornady SST's come with the rifle. The barrel has a set of Weaver mounts attached. This is the best medium game rifle I have ever owned. Handy for the woods or shooting stand but will still reach out and touch something...
