I gave 900 for as it is in the pics.
It looks to be tight with the top lever well to the right. Is that rust on the left side of the action or is it the case colors turning brown?
If the stock dimensions fit you than you got a sweet deal.
BTW according to the serial number it's approximately a 1927 Sterlingworth. I say approximately because no one seems to know how accurate the serial number charts are.
Congrats!! It's worth more than what you paid.
** Odds are it has 2 9/16 chambers. I'd feed it RST 2.5 ammo
You can "get away" with shooting 2 3/4 shells in it, but I wouldn't do it often.
