image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgWow! It was on the rack -fit and finish looks great. Missing the front sight hood but I would have removed it anyway. I took it to the counter and asked if this one had the box. Yep. Showed me another one out of the box. I immediately looked for the JM stamp. Nope. Told him I would take the display model. :biggrin:
Cleaned it tonight and will run some rounds thru it tomorrow when I take my 45/70 handloads to the range.
Good find, hope she shoots well. Front sight hoods are easy to find and easy to lose.
