I would bet the farm they took them out of the crates, measured and quick inspection, stuck them in a case, and shipped. These were advertised as "likely pretty crappy rifles, but still a piece of history" (my translation of their description).

If they pulled any that would absolutely not function in the state as removed from the crate, my guess is those got any redeemable parts removed and the rest scrapped.

disagree. all of mine were freshly greased and built up with mostly reparkerized parts. there was even fresh red grease under all the sight bases. they were just built

After reviewing the evidence posted here, it appears the answer is...................some are, some aren't.

Yeah. He bet the farm on that one. Wow. I agree that many of these seem built up-at a minimum with barrels replaced in many instances.
