Pictures! Bluing is excellent! A few screws could be better. Butt stock has a piece missing at the left top tang. Seller never mentioned, but I never asked, since my plan is to replace with walnut. So no hard feelings. I am happy with it. The scope is off (now I need fill screws) and I did not have to pay some one to take the mounts.

Nice rifle, Bob.
I'll bet it'll look even better when you put walnut on it.

Got my Westernfield yesterday!

You probably already know this, but a walnut forearm for a Model 30 will need to be the less common end cap style, not the barrel band version.

Do us a favor, measure the length of the forearm wood when you remove it and post the length as well. DP

I like the darkness of that stock. I just stripped the finish from the Glenfield I got last week and hope I can get it that dark. Otherwise I may go to walnut myself. Thanks for the pictures.
