I added this one to my collection last week.  Pictures were taken at night so not best.  It looks better than shown.

I like the look.  I don't remember the red butt pad on the nickel-plated rifles with the black stocks, but I think my memory may be playing tricks on me.

Safe and Happy Shooting!

I bought that used.  Guy bought it from AOA.  They are $468 there now.  Looks about like new.  I gave $325 that was to my door.

Congrats, Brad. I like the looks of those "stainless" models. BTW, do you still have the standard HW50S that you got a while back? If so, try swapping the stocks between it and this one. I think the silver action looks exceptionally good in the standard brown stock. And the dark blue action looks very nice in the black stock, too.

Yes I do.  Not a bad idea.  Thanks.

Mike, I've always thought the "stainless look" HWs were nickel plated, but I don't know for sure.

i had a rifle years ago that had a Armoloy finish and it is the same type to the eye 

it is tough stuff and has that stain matte finish 

Armoloy TDC – Thin Dense Chromium Coating

Nice outfit, I've always liked the look of a stainless finish. Has anyone ever made a true stainless steel springer?
