    End of Thread, I bought the gun, thanks to all who responded.

    Local shop has Standard 101, over-single with Gray-coil, barrel weight and adjustable MC stock. Lever is slightly to the left. blue is about 90% and wood is about 95%. Rib appears tight and action also appears tight. No rust or specks and barrel appears to be good. He's asking $750 out-the-door. What do you think? Should I pass or buy?

    I have been shooting my 101 Pigeon Grade since I bought it new in 1979. Midwest Gun Works jus did a tighening job, replaced all the springs and firing pins for about $150.as good as NIB..I wouldn't sell it for....., well, IF the price was right!! I use it now for skeet and sporting clays..Check out GUNBROKER.COM, search for 101 and you will get comparable prices..I say it sound like a good deal..but is the lever LEFT of center, or RIGHT of center..if it's left and real loose, yep, you will need a new locking block, call Midwest and ask them!...lb

    Probably a good deal...check on the availability of locking blocks, then get it if you like it.
