This rifle was handed down to me from my father. It appears to be in great condition. Not sure if it has ever been fired, but it has not been fired in over 40 years for sure. It has been stored in a gun sock since the late 60's/early 70's. A few small scratches here and there from being in a gun cabinet, but other than that appears to be in excellent condition. I am not a gun expert, but this rifle seems to be in top condition. Please see photos.
