Beautiful gun--nice catch--not sure but the scope looks like an older Redfield to me which would/should be very nice.
Yep--dress her up with new mounts/bases then she'll look proud.

I found a really nice (metal) Texan a couple of years ago that a previous owner had refinished the stock. He did a nice job but it is just too shiny. One of these days I'm going to tale some fine steel wool to it and see if i can back it off just a bit. Would have preferred the original finish, but the price was too good to quibble over the gloss. Have fun, jack
This I-pad knows what I want to say and how to spell better than I do. Sometimes I catch it's mistakes, sometimes I don't.
Realy like the older .35s My next project is a "Z" numbered .35 that had set in a shed for 20 years. The metal is 80% the stock is in need of refinishing. I will refinish the stock this summer plain to doing a tung oil finish on it.
I can't find a name on the scope, but it does say "universal" on one side. It fits the description of an older Weaver K4 model with the post barely disecting the crosshair, but i'm guessing a Weaver would say "Weaver". Who knows. I like the idea of a vintage scope on this rifle and hope it holds up. Gun will be a fun project and will never leave my hands other than to my son. Thanks for all the info guys.
bowhntr04, Looks like the scope is an older Redfield. Has their eyepiece look to it anyway. Have an older Bushnell Scopechief with the command post reticle. Turn the eyepiece dial and it goes from fine cross hairs to a BLACK post that pops up intersecting the horizontal hair. If
there was a better scope for fast shooting on running game, I don't know of it. Used to have mine on my .358 Win pump and loved it. Just put
the tip of the post where you want the bullet to go and get out your gutting knife. Scopechief scopes when this one was made was their top of
line and made by Bausch & Lomb. Optics are as clear and bright as anything I own and I own quite a few expensive scopes. I have it over 30
years and it was used when I bought it.

I have a 1.5 - 4.5 X 20 Scopechief on my 8mm-06 Mauser carbine, and it is a terrific little scope.
