Yep, this one rode the range on horseback in my uncle's saddle scabbard for 30 years up in Colorado prior to WWII. It shows the wear, but the bore is still mirror bright. I saw my uncle drop a big brown bear with one shot using this rifle back in the 60's when the bear came into our camp looking for trouble. 30-30 Win. is a good round.
