I bought this today in what I consider "The Raw" This came from a gentleman who inherited it from his Grandfather whom he never met. I followed him in the gun show today and I couldn't focus till I had it in my hands. Serial # 44590, octagon barrel 40-82 with 14 shells, I gave him 1400$ bones I'm sure I overpayed. But I never get chances at these things and I have yet to buy something off the internet. I'm gonna have to learn how. bore appears to be pretty pitted but when I can get home this week I will clean it and look again. I'm super stoked and will accept all criticisms, but they will not deter my excitement for this piece. Pictures below are the beat I have right now.

Octagon barrel with full mag & crescent butt is desirable, as well as being an 86. DOM 1890. If the bore & rifling are good then 1400 bones imo is a good deal.
If you want an educated or expert opinion on value, Bert & some others on here can advise but as far as the acquisition, Congrats.
