If it jams force it! If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

Doesn't seem to be outrageously priced, in my opinion. Looks like a good deal.

Bug,

Depends...are you buying it for collectability or a shooter? On the former, it may be worth that given the case, condition, etc. But if you were buying it to put rounds through it, there are better deals to be had, that's for sure. Both of my Field Grade 454's were considerably less purchased used.

I'd have to agree with Whitworth, I think you would be hard pressed to find a Model 83 field grade in any condition cheaper unless it was really beat! I don't like the pac's on mine and the wood or micarta grips are salty, so that would be my deciding factor if I were buyin. Field or Premier is only finish difference, as Lifetime warranty on premier only applies to the original buyer. the case is a little cooler than the cardboard box?
