Oil soaked, some external pitting on the barrels,great wood under the grime, front sight is damaged, very good bores. I will sympathetically restore this one and work up a load for it.

Any load data pencilled under buttplate or locks?

I have not pulled either yet.

Today I burned quite a few calories striking the barrels. Not done yet but I will be with another good polishing session or two.

I'll see if I can get it to regulated with 136 grains of black and a 340 grain bullet first.

I need to slug the bores, order the proper size bullets and build a new front sight before the first range trip.
