Can you give me your email address please? I'll send photos. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org. The gun is hard chromed, so you might say, the blueing is 0%. I am the second owner, so I connot give you an accurate round count. I have fired approx. 35,000, since I got it in 2005. If I had to guess, I would say less than 50,000. I have never fired it out of a ransom rest, because I've never had the opportunity. I'm very sure it will hold X-ring at 50 yards though. The best score I ever was able to get is 1479, but that's because of it being in my hands. I averaged 1468-71X one year and was classified "master" with it. Before I ever owned it the crane/yoke was broken and Tanaka fit a blue one to the gun. I took removed the blueing, so it better matches the rest of the gun. It's never rusted in 8 years, so that's not a problem. I also had the hammer spur removed and had the cocking notch removed, so it is DA only. The trigger is the best I have ever felt. Truly a work of art.
