Steven, that's a gorgeous rifle but that picture does make it look sanded.

I thought the same thing. The edges are not as crisp as others, BUT it is untouched. The rifle was the topic of discussion with several other collectors and NOT one thought it was sanded after it left the factory. Sometimes things are not as they appear to the eye through a picture. The wood is 100% the way it left the factory. At first. I thought Jed was being a little harsh on you. But, I am starting to agree with him. I don't think you'd know a great 99 if you tripped over it. Especially if you only had a picture to look at. smile smile

The gun is what it is, it might just be something that slipped thru QA at the factory with metal proud to the wood at the lever and over sanded pads despite being the premier model at the time (ignoring the K). Be a great hunting rifle, hope you enjoy it. grin

It would be interesting to see how many other ppl have 99s from this era with rounded cheeks and believe they are correct... I looked through pictures of my prewar Rs and RSs and all of mine have sharp cheeks.

Your Gun:



a prewar R is 250





A couple of prewar RSs:




a prewar R in 300



another prewar R in 300



Here is a slightly later TR/RT



These were just the ones that I had handy in my PB account... I also looked at 3 Ts, 2 Gs, and another R and all had really sharp cheeks.

And then there is the following BB 99H

I always figured this gun was lightly sanded but maybe its original... What say the experts? Steven? Jed?

Like Rory...I'm probably too stupid to recognize an original gun if it bit me in the arse.
