Came across one today in about 60%. Bluing on reciever is mostly gone but the wood looks good. Original buttplate. Not sure on the barrel length but is a 1st year production. serial is 41XX Someone electro penciled a long number on the reciever. It almost looks like a auction number. The safety has been replaced. The forarm doesnt look like ones on the auction side it is fancy engraving. So here is the questions

.Why is the forarm fancy? and what is it worth at 60% I know the blue book is 450.00 but what about in the real world. Hope Berts here

    Hello dgac,

    If the bluing on the receiver is almost gone, the safety is not original, the slide handle (forend wood) does not match, and with the electro-penciled number on the receiver, it is a long way from being a 60% grade gun. It sounds more like a 0 - 10% gun (and 10% would be really stretching it). Without seeing it in person (or good quality pictures), trying to put a price tag on it is next to impossible.
