Just wanting to confirm your opinion on the butt stock as being permanently altered; am assuming you are referring to the addition of the swivel?

also, on the rear barrel band it looks like the screw is the wrong size to me.  kind of exacerbates the difference even though the band is not original.



I am referring to the hole drilled in the butt stock for the sling mount… it cannot be easily repaired.  The rear barrel band & screw would also need to be replaced.

Informal survey:  a final bid price of $1411.  Is that about what others here expected?

I’m not surprised that the gun sold for 1400 bucks.  Take, for example, the Red-Book’s estimated value of a 98% like piece, which is 3400.00, now consider what a more pristine/100% specimen might bring over that of a 98% gun, quite possibly, 6000.00.   Again, consider that 1411.00 is 23+% of 6000.00, which is well within the 0 to 30% condition range that many collectors and dealers view as shooter-value condition.   Now consider two things, one, that a 100% specimen might go for as little as 4500.00, and the other, Bert’s estimation of 750.00, and one finds themselves smack in the middle of shooter-value condition at about 17%; which is a good place to be if one is on the buying end, and a fair place to be if one is on the selling end.
Some more points.  I think the seller’s reputation, extraordinary presentation talents, and venue, plus the scarcity of such a piece as he pointed out, at least twice, were the primary reasons the gun brought “top dollar shooter value.”
