That someone would have a new rifle relined, without first accuracy-testing, does not say much about the perceived quality of BSA rifling... or the intelligence of the buyer. Perhaps BSA should have...

Looks like the stock was broken/patched. Time will tell if it holds. The ornate inlay at the forward end looks like a repair patch, that could be touched-up a little. I see it as a fun project. ...
