Re: What Did I Purchase?
Wow Matt, what an improvement in the bores after your initial cleaning. I'd bet the barrels check out ok, but Dr. Drews advice on having the wall thickness evaluated is spot-on. The position of the top lever would indicate that the action still has lots of miles left on it, and the condition of the screw slots would indicate that no ham handed ding dongs have been into the gun. Where are you from, we might have a member nearby that could give the gun a once over in terms of wall thickness and an internal check-up. If nothing else someone might chime in with a tried and trusted Smith smith nearby.
