Re-Blued?

Posted by Dan Shepardson on Sunday, 29 March 2009, at 9:23 p.m.

I have opportunity to purchase a Model 1873 but I am unsure if it has been re-finished or not. The stock has been clearly sanded and and varnished. All the cartouches are gone but the wood is straight and uncracked. All the metal is blued including the receiver and block. The serial number is 479252. The rifle is complete and un-cut. It has been sitting in an attic for some 50-60 years. It has some surface rust spots and a lot of dirt but I think it will clean up OK. Ball park value? Thanks. --Dan
