Extremely nice! I don't see a lot of wear except in the bluing. The wood finish and checkering certainly look excellent in the photos.

Where did you find it?

It was called a "Huffman" at small local auction. bluing is fairly thin on barrels. Wood and checkering are very nice.

That is a very interesting rear sight. I'm not well versed in them, so maybe it's my ignorance, but it looks unlike any I have seen before. Is it custom made or maybe a custom modification of a production sight?

Caliber/chamber?

It's a Whelen-Howe bolt peep that completely replaces the bolt shroud. Hoffman arms commercially produced them. It's a 30-06

It is a might fine rifle, even my my nonbolt rifle perspective.

I hope you get to hunt it someday soon. It would look really good next to an elk or mule deer.
