i think a lot of 1st timers are a bit put back on the first rifle.
Some just do not know what to expect from a 50 plus year old rifle that could have been all over the world a few times over and taken appart by so many people.

I think you have a fine looking gun there.

If you read the description closely about the only thing you can rely on for condition is the Muzzle and throat wear... after that the condition cosmetically can be worse.
My friends M1 has a 1 and 2 reading and the action and barrel look like knew but the stock and other metal are closer to rack grade IMHO but its a great shooter.

Welcome to the forum. That rifle looks just like my Springfield. Great shooter. I love it. Although the deer are not too crazy about it. Congrats on getting an H & R!

Your rifle is dirty, and needs some gentle cleaning, using methods other's have posted already.
I would try to fix the gas cylinder yourself. There's a chance it may be original to the rifle. You'll have to do some research to figure out if its an HRA gas cylinder or not.
In terms of quality, I've received many service grades over the years that were in worse condition than that. Don't be dismayed. Go through the parts, and see how many original parts you have. If they are all original HRA parts, then I'd say you did quite well! Its a keeper.
If you still don't like it, you could sell it to a collector on the forums here, and use the money to purchase one that you like.

It helps keep the number of people on the Forum down, if you attack newcomers for ignorance instead of nicely educating them.
