I was there also. They are all 40X B's. I did not see any 722 actions and all had the bent bolt. There were 12 left at about noon and most of those had mismatched bolts. Over all the rifles were in good to great condition. Saw two or three that were on the fair but still worth more than the asking price. Stocks will need some love on a few of these but a little sand paper and tung oil and any problems can be fixed. The 82Gs had a little surface rust on the bolts either on the bottom or on the extractor area where the bolts are not blued. The yellow protective greese is all dried out on these and looks like some moisture got to them. Steel wool will remove the rust as none looked pitted or deep and you will never know it was there.
