As an insurance adjuster we would be inclined to have guns destroyed if in a fire. Even smkle damage was a concern. If you had some high dollar rifles, say $5000 and up, we would have them tested, xray and magniflux and hardness / temper. And that was considered risky. You ddo not worry about the guy that bought it knowing the issues, butthe next guy that didn't.

Agreed the metal looks much worse than the wood. Something does look funny...wonder if the guy has another stock and put it on the rifle.

Howdy All;

There is always the option to send the seller an inquiry
to ask what the circumstances actually were that surround
the rifle in question. Ask for some closer pix of the action
and descriptions of what is shown... How do you find out
anything without asking questions???

The seller does state the following, " This gun has been through a fire. There is over 2 hours of cleaning and ultra sonic tank washes. I have test fired the gun 10 rounds, fired all 10 rounds. The gun did not want to extract until the last 3 so she may need an extractor spring and a new mag. The gun is now void of finish and has some fitting. The standard old rule is if the wood is intact the metal should be fine. I have shot it, I would shoot it,. However the gun is sold as is and I would not recommend firing if with hotter hand loads unless serviced and reviewed by an actual gun smith. "

You can get a closer look by placing your cursor over the photo
and Right clicking, select View Photo, then when it shows by itself
hold down the Ctrl key and tap the + key (for Mac's).

Disclaimer: I have zero interest in this auction nor any connection with the seller.

For the guys who noticed that the metal is more damaged, I'm not surprised. Metal is a good conductor. Wood is a relatively poor conductor. When both materials are exposed to an extreme temperature, the metal will equalize with the surrounding temperature faster than the wood. The missing variable is time. Given enough time, the wood will also reach the ambient temperature and burn/char if hot enough.

I have a Winchester 9422 made in '73. It was probably in a fire, it looks like it was made in 1894 and had been on many cattle drives. I like it, I have another made in '74 that is 95%, like that too but the rough one has it's own charm. Of course a lever gun looking "experienced" is something to be expected.

Discount Guns is down the hill from me.

If I get a chance I'll go down and look at the rifle.

Any specifics you're looking for let me know in the next couple days.

Powder Monkey, Howdy;

If you feel like it, just ask the seller what's the story behind the
rifle, if he's that close to ya then you may have some local knowledge
about it as well. I'm thinking it would be interesting to know what's
"The Rest of the Story".

Thanks if ya do, and if ya don't then that's ok too. Thanks also for the offer.
