I didn't even read the story. I agree, the pictures should speak for themselves with the amount you fork over. Stories can add a lot to value if they are documented and believable.

I couldn't see any pictures of the bore and most of the time the description of the bore is way off. I use a Hawkeye Borescope to check mine out and have been surprised at how different the bore can look if spying through the chamber up to the muzzle compared to a direct inspection with a scope.

I only buy a rifle I can't directly inspect, from an auction or Gun Broker, for example, if I feel like I am getting a bargain and won't feel too screwed if I get less than I hoped for. I have learned, with many people's help from this sight, to examine the pictures very, very carefully and ask for more if needed. I have come out on both sides of this gamble but feel that I am ahead of the game with the risks I have taken so far.
