Mounted with a Zeiss Varipoint V 1.1-4x24T* scope. Fitted in a nicely contrasted multi-point checkered walnut stock signed "D.W.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as upgraded by Duane Weibe, retaining 95% blue finish with scattered light handling marks, muzzle and edge wear, and some bolt cycling marks. Wood is very good with minor dings and scratches and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Scope is excellent with clear optics and crisp reticle.
