I have one of these which belonged to a local farming family until recently. They bought it new and used it continually until some years back when the last old guy that reloaded the ammo for it died. It is in very good shape and cycles as well and as cleanly as my Uberti clones. The bore is not perfect, but is pretty good. It has obviously been looked after. My friend who is a gunsmith owes me a few favours and offered to restore it, rust blue the metal and re-co the stock. I think this would negatively effect the re-sale value. What is one of these in good condition worth in the states? The reciever has been painted in a silver paint many years ago to protect it and it has done a good job. It is probably Silvafrost, which was very popular for protecting metal when I was a lad some 45+years ago.
