Used lever action inspections
I'm in the market for a Winchester 73....original. Since most everyone selling these (outside a shop) sells over the internet, I'll probably have to inspect it within a very short time frame before committing to the purchase. So, I need to know what to look for to give it a good once over. Then I can decide to accept it or not and forward it on to a real smith.
I could also use some suggestions on what equipment I would probably need. Anything else beside a bore lite and headspace gauges?
I'm only interested in a "shooter", not a fine collector grade.............and I am not interested in a clone at this time! I want the real thing.
