I'd like to say "unfired" but it must have been proof-fired at the factory, otherwise this is as close as one gets to NIB. Papers, tools in the proper matching box. Manufactured in 1978-80 per the SCSW. I did not get the S&W vapor paper so this is fairly priced at $725. Only trade interest is for an excellent Remington 788 in 30-30 only.
