On a gun show exhibitor's table full of Winchesters, I'd contemptuously look right past the one refurbished to resemble what it looked like at the factor, with no appreciation whatsoever for the restoration efforts made, to drool admiringly at your new acquisition, just as it is.

That's good to hear. Will post photos when I get back in Town.

It's funny; I saw a refurbished 1892 on one of the Auction sites that was ridiculously over-priced, along with a poor job of refinishing the Wood and metal. The wood had heavy Oil stains near the Tang area, as well as the Forearm, and it looked like the s0-called "Professionally Restored" Gunsmith, didn't make any attempt to even out the Wood. the metal refinish was also in what looked like a modern Hot caustic Blackish tint. Very sad.

Somewhere in Heaven George, "Noremf", is smiling and saying bless you Sir.

That's a nice rifle.
