Any expert evaluation of the following gun at the below link would be greatly appreciated.



Mark, on no better grounds than that it “looks too good to be true,” I suspect it’s been expertly refinished.  However, the only specific clue for my “suspicion” that I can point to is the “Winchester” marking on the brl, that looks like it might have been buffed.  On the other hand, that part of the roll die, because of the special font, might not imprint into the steel as deeply as the block letters, which look perfect.  Only Seewin has the experience to call this.

If the cond is original, it’s a bargain!  But even if it’s refinished, the quality of the workmanship makes it, I think, a fair price.
