Hi guys seasons greetings
There is a possibility of a pre ww1 stalking rifle being available to me in .275 Rigby. My question is not about the calibre but things to look at when buying an old gun. Obviously I expect the woodwork will be tired after so many years but what about the rest.
Do you know of anybody that offers a service to look at older guns to check condition of barrel etc. The gun is not worth a fortune but I would want to keep any old rifle original apart from refurbishment to bring it back to life I do not want to undetake a major rebuild so I am not afte a gun that is totally shot out. (hope that makes sense).
Any advice welcome
