Oh, someone else already knocked the new off of it. Not surprising given that its 40 years old, if I read that date code correctly. My comment referred to the specific finish that's applied to the wood. It's a bit like a shiny clear coat, almost like what Browning uses. Something a bit darker and more satin would really put it over the top, but that's a job for another day.That new rifle needs to be shot, a whole bunch of times. Dragged through the woods to get a few dents and dings, just to give it some character. .With use, the shine will wear off. Unless you are a neat freak.
