One can only assume that it was in the bottom of the closet when the cat delivered a litter on it. Had to cover up the damage to the finish some way

The ad states condition is "AS NEW." Yeah right. Might be a good base for a project gun for half the money. Not so sure how tough it is to get the Cerakote off.

Hi There,

I agree that it is less than desirable with that finish
on it. I did a quick Google search and saw a video
of someone removing Cerakote® from an AR using
a bead blasting set-up and was using plain table salt
as the medium! So, depending on the condition under-
neath, it might be salvageable (but I wouldn't do it
unless the price was a lot cheaper).

Good Luck!

This has been re listed for months, it started out at just under $3000!
I emailed the owner a month or so back and discussed the price. A rusted and pitted Centennial that had a paint finish added to cover up the damage. Not uncommon as a way to "fix" a gun's bad finish. Funny that the guy actually thinks he enhanced the gun's value...but that was his selling point :rolleyes:

You have to feel sorry for the seller's heirs....'cause that heirloom will be part of the estate.

Disgraceful! Bout like someone taking a Buntline Special and putting a shorter barrel on it. In a post Mr. B'line asked whether to cut barrel down or get another one? Duh! more dollars than sense?
