Jim, I agree with you 100%. I'm going to take a shot at it.I have a hunch the stock is real if what they said to me was accurate. It's a consignment piece and some writen history comes with it so that could be interesting. We'll see. I'll have 3 days to get it back to them. I'm concerned about the rifle rear sight and wrong rear sight screws,the later hammer,and the trigger bow needs to be looked at under magnification among other things. $4,000.00 is where they are at shipped with the 3 day inspection.Thanks to everyone for their input. As I've said before,this is where the pros congregate. Michael H.Collins
