The option is rare but the over all condition of the gun is not up to the price they are asking for.

This one was sold at RIA this past weekend for about $4,500.00 if I remember right. You do the comparison. When they post the sale prices, I will edit this post as far as the sale price goes.

I agree, the price they are asking for the rifle on GI seems high.

The one sold at RIA sure has a bunch of features.

The bottom of the RIA gun says "Condition: Good as refinished some time ago..." Does that mean just the metal surfaces, or did the wood get it too?

I'm curious about the Cody sheet on the GI gun. It looks like black ink and blue ink on the same sheet in two different hands. Do you guys see that or am I missing something. I'm not real familiar with those sheets as I get the emails.

I missed that about refinished on the RIA gun.
About the 2 colors of ink on the Cody sheet. I have gotten several from them that are the same way. The are again changing the format for s/n searches. I think what happens is, when a request comes in, the make, model & s/n are recorded on the sheet and then someone else does the actual search and fills in the data.

Now that you mention it, I saw the part about "good as refinished" on the RIA gun. I have the same question. Just the metal? Maybe that is why the estimates on it are low?

Paul,

You are correct... the blue ink is Jesi's (Jessica), and Gary is the personal who looked in the records and filled out the rest of the sheet in black ink.

I saw this rifle in Tulsa. It looks much better in person. I have bought a number of Winchesters from this seller. Have always been very pleased with him and the product received.
