My cousin in Anchorage called this morning and asked about a rifle he received from his Father in law. It's a Sears Model 53 chambered in 30-06 new never fired.
The Father in law had a 6X Weaver mounted when purchased and doesn't remember when he bought it, best guess is pre 1975. Serial number 273320XX.
Any information about the rifle would be greatly appreciated. He's not looking a gift horse in the mouth just want's to know what he has. Any news good or bad about the rifle would also be appreciated.
Thanks for any information.
