^^^ I disagree.

It has the patina of use... leave her be. Looks like a quality job. Why try to make it look newer?

Is the scope mount a detachable side mount? Looks like it might be the (very high quality) Griffin and Howe, which would speak to "expensive" in it's day.

It looks like a nice shooter. These were originally .30-06 in military service, BTW. Immediate Post WW-II and manufactured by FN, used as an interim rifle just as the FN-49 was being entered into service and the FAL was on the drawing board. It's a quality sporter built on a very high quality platform. "Someone" spent some money on it to have it built.
