    A4 on GB. Thoughts?

    Stocks looks nice, maybe too nice. Cartouches deep, crisp. Looks all correct as far as parts, but scope give me pause. This is the 11000+ A4 made and according to the books, the 330 scope with Mil spec designation electro-penciled on the side were on guns from about 5000-10000. Possible?

    Looks nice. But they need to get a photo of the bolt cutout, the inscribed Weaver and is it a Redfield base. The case is a CMPicon but I do not see where it was sold by the CMP, so it is just a case. If the stock is truly an A4 and the Weaver 330 is correct, then that is not a bad price.

    I asked the seller to send me photos of that a week ago. Cutouts look correct. The scope looks good, but the electro-pencil thing is always concerning. (I will try to post those shots later) Three things that give me pause: 1. Even if the scope is bonified, being it's a 330, it's late for this A-block gun. According to the books, that ended around the ten-thousandth gun. This is over eleven thousand. 2. The DEEP clean hits on the cartouches. 3. The barrel is a very light park and the roll marks possibly betray a re-park job.

    Everything looks "too good", for me. My opinion.

    Then it may appear here for verification before sale...we've seen it before. A hard lesson to find out you have a nice shooter only. Hope it at least does that.
