Grabenkater sold me a rifle that described bore condition...immaculate and well maintained.....however, upon inspection, had heavy flaking rust near the crown and fine rust through the whole bore, there was no remnant of any oiling, it is a black powder rifle and the rust was apparent through the bore. NOT maintained correctly. Also I sent USPS MO promptly same day, I had to call many days later as to where the rifle was, he forgot to send it, I had to ask repeatedly for tracking info til I got it. I am an experienced rifle shooter, 45 years of shooting, and have purchased 100's of rifles. There was no remedy presented by Grabenkater to resolve the issue. I would not encourage anyone to do business with this man. I was mislead and ignored. Not a good experience. Foxmanmt
