They were kept in good working order but were more often than not, beat to heck. Not my 270! Mine had an almost perfect coat of gloss finish on the sharp looking stock. The bluing was flawless, bolt jeweled, and the action was lubed and slick. I took pride in keeping it nicer than the other rifles in the house.
