Fitted with a removable trigger group, single selective gold washed trigger, and tang mounted thumb safety.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. 99% original finish remains with some scattered light handling marks. The wood is also excellent with intense figure, sharp checkering, and light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good with storage and handling marks on the exterior and some light staining on the interior.
