Its an IAB(yeah I know)made in 96. It has a 29 inch barrel, one inch across the flats. I haven't slugged the bore yet and the twist rate is 1:52. Not sure how that's going to stabilize those big ringtail conicals but we shall see. Wood to metal fit is pretty good with a little proud wood in a couple of places. Metal to metal is good. The lever could have been finished better at the hinge but its not really noticeable unless you're looking for it. I don't care for the wood finish and will end up redoing it. The bluing is a flat black, almost looks parkerized but it doesn't look bad. It doesn't have long range sights but is drilled and tapped for them, that's what the two proud screw heads are for. I've used vernier sights before and didn't care for them anyway. All in all I'm pleased with it. If it shoots half as good as it looks it'll be a keeper. If not I'll trade it for something else.
