Only four photos for a $4,500 item seems like they are trying to hide something.
Stock appears to be long comb/short wrist, and with solid butt is not even a carbine stock. Inletting for the saddle ring bar looks funky. Cartouche looks too good and crisp. IMHO it is a total hump job based on what is visible.
Hands on inspection may result in different opinion, but no way I would bid on this one.
