This is a vintage piece of Americana that's still a great little plinker. It functions nicely and is all stock except for an upgraded rear sight to a WB King Bull Horn style. It also looks like someone refinished the wood with a burgundy shellac (lacquer) and didn't do the best of jobs. Oh well, it is a durable finish and although it's scraped off here and there it kept the wood underneath from getting gouged so it worked well and the wood is in nice shape. I had always planned on stripping it and refinishing it but just never found the time. If you're into vintage .22 American rifles and looking for something fun, affordable to shoot and with the potential to clean up to considerably nicer than it already is without actually needing anything, this would be the ticket. I will consider trades for a .22 handgun or possibly other handgun or for high efficiency speakers (92dbs or greater at 8 ohms). There's tons of info online about this fun little fellas!
