    I think that is beautiful, Just shows it's age and history. You could always spin the barrel and mag tube in a lathe and file the surface to reduce the pitting then refinish it but I like it as it is. I have been looking for a 92 for ages but keep missing out when they come up.

    Permit arrived this week so I pick it up on Saturday, I did have a play with it at the shop last Saturday and the timber will definitely be getting restored but the metalwork is good enough for now.

    A few weeks ago I picked up my first 39A. 1947. A little rough but a great shooter.
