Forgot RKB!! Me like!! Lol. Looks like a nice gun, I would want to find the original scope that was soldered to its rings and would prefer one that the lumps didn't show through on bottom of the action but a beautiful gun nonetheless! Thanks for sharing.

Nice gun (second one), made in March 1969, still behind the Iron Curtain. It has the Q1 (First Quality) on the rear lug so it was an export gun.
Since I no longer hunt, I just sit back and enjoy the beauty of a well-made drilling, also.
