I have had this gun for 12 yrs. It was my step dads fathers gun.It does not have any sentimental value to me and would like to sale it. I believe the gun is a 1951 year model.Some of the blueing is worn off and has some nicks and scratches.Other than that I don't know much about it. I would trade for an AR 15 5.56/223 decked out or sale for 1150. OBO. Will not ship must pickup in Hurst TX.
