Re: Got lucky on Gunbroker today - 68/68

Picked up rifle from 10-day hold this afternoon (my LGS is having a big sale, otherwise would have been closed) and am extremely pleased.
Bore is not - at least in present uncleaned state - as nice as I'd hoped, and firing pin is broken, but, I didn't get it to shoot, and I'm somewhat leery of taking off the breechblock cap for probably the first time ever.
It likely wasn't issued to the field, but was probably shot a fair amount in the SA range-house, and perhaps just put away when either the firing pin and/or sight slide failed.
I'm starting on my "Trapdoor News" piece, so, anyone with anything to add to the subject should contact me as soon as possible. Thanks.
