SOLD. This rifle, made if 1948, was appraised at 50% by a local shop. The bore is very good, and the rifle appears to be in better shape than their appraisal to me. The action is feels smooth, and it would make a great plinker. Being that it is a lever action it will shoot short, long, and long rifle. These rifles are hard to find so now is you chance to own a piece of history. Be 21 and bring $400.00 and a Washington drivers license. Thanks for looking.
