    First pic in this set sure looks like it was re-blued. Then I saw the pimp shine bolt and the last photo kind of confirms. Someone along the way turned this into their idea of a hunting rifle. ...

    Not my wheelhouse by any means (I have one from my Grandfather and 1 from a package deal) but it looks real to me. Real maker for sure. Patina and construction look familiar.

    Very nice find. The wood looks wonderful for such an old weapon. Metal finish too. I've never seen one outside of a museum so I'm guessing they're fairly rare in the wild. Congrats!

    I'll add this after looking at the stock in particular more closely on the computer. We like to see sharp crisp edges on any machine cuts (we can see the recoil lug closely) and they all look sharp...

    I totally buy this story... in fact if that solved the problem I also probably would not even swap them back. And yes the font is spot on and the rifles are very close in s/n.
