    I was going to say unless you're particularly drawn to that rifle I'd skip gun broker and order directly from CMP. Unfortunately it looks like the only guns CMP has left are field grade guns (Springfield or H&R receivers) for $650. Still not a bad deal but the gun won't be as nice. They my get more at some point but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

    Sounds like a shot out barrel.
    Until 1956 or so, US military 30-06 was corrosive primed.
    Plus, 40 or 50 or more years of steel cleaning rods messes up the muzzle.

    The techno geeks get all carried away with gauges and such to measure throat erosion and muzzle errosion.
    My "quick and dirty" trick to check muzzles is to take a loaded cartridge of the of the designated caliber and stick the projectile end into the muzzle.
    This will provide a quick check, it should only go in to the ogive. If it goes all the way in until the brass touches, don't buy that one.

    Here's mine. Came across it at a gunshow. Good price, private seller, and since I had been looking for one I couldn't pass it up. I figured it would need work but at $400 I could afford to put some money and time into it. Action worked well and it was clean and lubed. Took it home and found out it needed a barrel. At 50 yards it would sometimes hit a paper plate, functioned perfectly though. Had it re-barreled and now it hits exactly where you point it.

    It was a rebarrel, and the cartridge didn't go all the way in.
