mail ordered a Win rack grade special last year and there was considerable pitting right above the wood and the receiver legs were completely pitted. I wanted a shooter and the description said lots of pitting, so i was fine with it- but just order one with realistic expectations.

Obviously picking one out at a store is best, but that's not available to a lot of us.

Did you refinish the gas cylinder or did it come like that? Looks really nice by the way.

Personally I would prefer they simply leave rack grades as rack grades, and sell rack grades again.
