Marty, I'll be browning the barrel and tang, fixing all the wood gaps, I've already bedded the barrel today, just pretty it up and get her back into shooting shape! I will also be putting new sights on it as well.

I wouldn't put too much effort in it Jon. It doesn't sound like it was a good gun.

I only saw one post there that said his wasnt accurate. We all know how that story goes.

I looked at the bore and it has great rifling on it. I will put some time into the rifle and make her purdy once more.
