The full length stock has a checkered pattern on the grip area, two stock wedges with brass escutcheons, two brass ramrod pipes, and a brass inlaid shield on the stock flat.

Rating Definition:

Good. The action and barrel have a smooth dark patina with some minor pitting overall. The brass is fine. The revarnished stock is good with a repair on the right side of the forearm and a couple hairline cracks near the lock plate, along with some minor handling marks. There is some wear in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically fine.
