Item Description: Translate description
serial #1406893, 30-06, 24" star gauged barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 98-99% excellent quality maker rust blue. The bolt body is bright with the nice crosshatched burnishing seen during the period, the extractor with light wear. The shroud shows remnants of some silvery case-hardening mixing with its rust blue. The receiver races have been honed bright and the right race and follower neatly jeweled. The bottom metal shows the tiniest amount of light oxidation, it is unobtrusive. The gun is stocked classic style with a nice left side flared shadow line cheekpiece. The stock is of English walnut and rates very good plus to near excellent showing only some very minor handling marks from light use and with some a very stunning grain in the butt, especially in the area of the cheekpiece. The grip shows borderless checkered panels with the forend wraparound, each showing numerous very tiny little overruns which are somewhat amusing. The rifle is very classic with its horn forend tip, blued steel gripcap and checkered steel buttplate providing a 13 3/4" length of pull. There are generous quick detachable swivel studs along the toeline and underside of the forend. The rifle is sighted with a banded sporting ramp front which supports a simple bead sight along with a knurled hood while the rear receiver ring supports a Lyman aperture sight. The front guard screw shows some very light damage and there is a small ding or scratch just ahead of it on the front extension. There are two squarish cracks left and right at the very front of the stock flat, disassembly reveals a repair to a crack through the recoil lug area, very professionally done, utilizing bedding compound, it is likely these cracks may have been caused by the installation of a hidden crossbolt, they are unobtrusive and barely worth the mention. the underside of the barrel is star gauge numbered "A/483" and the star gauge mark is present at the muzzle. The rifle comes with a copy of a June 8, 1934-dated voucher from the DCM and a copy of an SRS letter, showing shipment of this rifle by serial number, NRA Type Sporter, to Dr. Judson A Smith, care of Kirkwood Brothers Boston. Overall a very handsome 30s-made Kirkwood sporter that likely shoots extremely well with its lovely star gauged barrel. (36649-11) {C&R}
