I was very pleasantly surprised by the nice wood and the quality and brilliance of the case hardening. The bore looks as nice as the outside. My wife is not a gun person whats so ever but tolerates it with me. But since it is a family heirloom now, she wants to learn to shoot it. Lessons will begin soon.
Very nice gun! The new ones are not made as well as that one. I have a Topper Model 158 in 30-30 that I bought in 1970 my only regret is not buying the 20 ga barrel that came with it. It was a combo but I just didn't think I could afford it at the time. Sometimes I wonder what the store owner did with the extra barrel.
