I received this rifle a few days ago. Being part of the Lee family I was eager to complete my collection. I was not expecting a museum quality rifle but I was expecting better quality from the description listed. Upon immediate inspection; the handguard has a significant crack as well as the buttstock. The buttstock is also loose. The forward volley sight is missing its adjuster and the rear volley sight/safety are completely broken off. The adjustable main sight is also missing and to be expected, so is the cleaning rod. The pitting is heavy and the bluing is completely gone. There is rust in the breach and appears the incorrect magazine for the rifle--I know Lee Metfords/Speed Lees should have single stack, but this appears to have a double stack. I will have to further breakdown the rifle/bring to gunsmith to make sure the rifle is safe to fire. To make this rifle complete, locating the missing parts--will put this rifle over the $1000 mark.
