    you could spend thousands more and shoot less deer.

    Ditto to the above - the Mk1 does have a very well sited tang safety catch (like a side by side shotgun), which was dropped from the Mk11 for reasn of cost.

    Most of the value is probably in the S&B scope - if it is a good scope would think he has a very good deal.

    Even if the barrel was shot out for 400 he could have it rebarreled with an Archer Barrel from Border Barrels - www.border-barrels.com.

    personaly sam
    i would whip it over to mike dicks and let him hav a look
    but failing that that try it at the range and see how it groups with any fodder the seller has and also take some factory of mixed weights with you to try to see how that groups , then i would test the scope , by firing a shot then move it up 15 clicks, fire another shot move it right 15 clicks fire again , 15 clicks down fire again and 15 clicks left ,fire again, using the same point of aim you should get something that resembles a 3 inch square approx
    but like others hav said the scope is probaly the item worth most in the deal ,
    pays your money and takes your chance
    good luck

    I agree with some of the other posters here, 400 for the S&B could be worth it alone, particularly if it is a variable mag, German Model (as opposed to a Hungarian, nothing wrong with them at all but 400 is closer to their new price).
    400 for rifle and scope is a good deal, a similar package new could set you back 2500 depending on model of rifle and glass, so even one that needs a bit of restoration as opposed to major overhaul should be ok.

    Good luck
