I would consider these "fair" condition, at best. And even that could be a stretch.
I purchased one of these, along with three of the "Gunsmith special" rifles - GSS. When they arrived, I had a very difficult time trying to figure out which one was "good", out of the nasty assortment that I received. I actually had to consult the invoice to see that the best one was a GSS -- and was actually a customer-returned "good" rifle with bad headspace; while the "good" rifle that I had ordered was extremely rusty, covered in more grime than expected, lacked some sight parts, and had frozen action screws.
Because the overall transaction resulted in being able to put together a complete and -probably- usable 'fair' condition rifle, I did not feel that a return was warranted. But I also did not come out satisfied. Even for a Spanish 1916s, the rifle that I received is just a fraction of a grade above scrap metal.
They aren't worth the asking price.
