This was my granddad's deer rifle, SN 160. It's seen a lot of use in the wet Pacific Northwest, but seems to be in fine mechanical shape. I took it apart and spent some time cleaning it, and managed to free up the stuck ejector by beating on it with a nail set. There are a couple hairline checks in the wood; one on the front grip, and one on the stock starting at the neck.

great family heirloom! For its age that is a good looking rifle, amazing to see it's still all original and even has decent "cheeks" left in the stock. It was took care of for sure.
I've put a dozen rounds through it. The first few with the ejector stuck and the rounds not clearing. It works pretty well now, although I just tested its autoloading ability. It still has to get sighted in. I would really like to try hunting blacktail with it. Out of the rain.
