Thank you for all the feedback I received! I'm going to negotiate the price and shipping with him this week. I think it's a great price for a rifle you don't see everyday. I've handled a MAS 36 before, and the bolt is odd, and is blocky looking, but they have a strong action! IIRC, it's a combination of the Lee-Enfield, Mauser, and M1917/P14 action system. I like the round being similar to a .308, and I can reload the round too. I like the wear too, honest wear. Again, thank you all for your help and insight!
