Sorry for the delayed response. I posted before a delayed flight home from Disney with my family and headed to work this morning. Currently at work after catching up on some things. I did not attempt to refinish, I mounted a 4x12 scope on it and sighted it in for deer season this year, but unfortunately never got to use it. It is a featherweight, I will have to measure the barrel length. I appreciate the healthy skepticism due to my low post count, but can provide references here on the fire if needed. And no it won't being going to gunbroker, I have only ever purchased from there not sold.
