This .220 Swift Sporter rifle was produced in 1952. It is a high-condition rifle with all factory finishes and in original configuration. It grades in NRA excellent, approaching perfect condition.
The stock is retains its factory finish in perfect condition. There are no blemishes. The factory steel buttplate is intact with minimal bluing wear. The original bluing on the rifle is near perfect - grading at 98% with no noteworthy edge wear and just a few slight blemishes. There is a slight scuff on the left side of the receiver and light evidence of a scope mount. The bore of the 24" barrel is perfect. Under borescope, we have confirmed this rifle has had almost no use. Possibly only the factory test rounds fired through it. The action is tight with no issues or visible wear. All parts are original and correct for the period and chambering. The bolt is correct and serial number matched to the receiver.
Background - This rifle came to us from a famous southern California collector's estate (we are happy to provide details of this provenance upon request). When it arrived in our shop it had two issues: 1. The stock had been replaced with a Monte Carlo style stock. and 2. The bolt shaft had been jeweled. We have replaced the stock with a correct and mint low-comb stock with all original finishes, and have restored the factory polish to the bolt. In the interest of full disclosure, we felt this information needed to be included in the description.
NOTE: This rifle must be shipped to an FFL or C&R holder who can complete the transfer. If needed, we are happy to assist you in locating an FFL holder near you who can receive and transfer the rifle to you.
