Pretty much. It was listed as unissued and unfired, but I'm assuming that is AFTER it had been refurbed. Refurb marks on the stock lead me to believe this. The bore is EXCELLENT and VERY clean/smooth and rifling is excellent. The stock has always been in great shape and I have not taken ANY sandpaper to it at all. Just 4-0 steel wool to work in cleaners, and ultimately the Tom's mix.
