Stan I do not believe this 1987 is worth anything near $5K but I did see one at Cabelas today for $800 and mine is much nicer. Cabelas always marks their stuff a little high in my opinion. Here are a few more pics of the old girl. I don't think the wood has been redone.Do be aware that those early rimfires are designed for blackpowder ammo. Should be fired only with standard velocity ammo, no Mini-Mags, no high velocity bulk pack, no Stingers or hyper-velocity rounds. Extensive use with high pressure rounds WILL crack the bolt and there are NO spares out there except from junk guns.
Looks to be in pretty good shape, the finish looks very good for an over 100-year old rifle, makes me wonder if it's been refinished. If it's as-issued, I've seen those at collectors' shows for around $5K, quite a gift.
