"Nnnnnnnnno. No I can't.

Did you get this off of a dead a Somalian poacher?"

 

To be fair, it is fixable. I mean, not by me (safety doesn't work, bore looks like mice have been using it as a bathroom since '79, firing pin is broken, missing bottom metal & all internals & there's that stock) and it really wouldn't be financially viable to do it, but it 'could' be done.

If I'm reading it correctly as a Model 273 dot something, this rifle was made by Winchester for Sears.

Not so fast.  If they are Craftsman bolts they could be original.....

I'm really digging the custom trigger guard and floor plate assembly. Did he beat them out of a garbage can lid?

I was wondering if they were galvanized.

I'd take that on as a project.   But I have an unhealthy love for Sears branded items.

So then does it have the Sears lifetime replacement warranty? Or is that program kaput with the recent implosion?

I think it's been altered from factory specifications, invalidating any warranty (specific or implied) I'm not positive, but I'm reeeasonably sure.....

      I have been wanting a nice O/U for a while.  I sold some guns and saved my pennies and bought this Zoli.
      Took her out and shot some sporting clays today.
