I got this pretty rough looking Winchester 74 because I was intrigued by the old type of action. It was dusty and dirty, and had some surface rust that cleaned right off. It has several stains and dings in the barrel, down to white metal. But for $75 I figured it would make another plinker. It actually looks very nice after all. I test fired it and it cycled fine, and was quite accurate at the things I was plinking at. Kind of a funny looking, prewar design. From 1942 before production stopped for the war.
