It features: German silver blade dovetail front sight and adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sporting sights, the standard early two-line New Haven barrel address, and "44 W.C.F." at the breech, smooth straight grip stock and forearm, metal forearm cap, and a smooth buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Good as period refinished with most of a dull, faded blue finish showing edge wear, mild handling marks, and finished over pitting. The stock is very good as revarnished and has some mild pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
