serial #1007328, 218 Bee, 24" round barrel with button magazine and a bright excellent bore. This is a very nice rifle which shows honest use and is equipped with the desirable Winchester bolt peepsight. The barrel retains 97% original blue as does the forend tip while the exposed tip of the magazine is about 80%. The action retains 80% strong original blue with all loss on forward section of action and belly from honest carry wear. The areas of loss show a smooth gray patina. The plain pistolgrip buttstock and forend rate near excellent with a light coat of added light oil, they look lovely and have great color and surfaces. The rifle is sighted with a ramp mounted beaded blade front, blank in rear slot and a Winchester 98A bolt peepsight. A fine little 65 that will perform well as an investment but can still be lightly used without effecting its value. (17889-84) {C&R} [Allan Wilson Collection] (3000/4000) SOLD FOR $4,312.50
