Manufactured in 1888. Single bead sight on the barrel with a 2 5/8 inch chamber and choke measuring modified. Standard "WRACO" monogram on the left side of the casehardened receiver. The bottom of the barrel and top of the breech block have British proofs, and the lower tang is marked "722" under the highly figured checkered pistol grip stock. Smooth two-piece slab forend and checkered pistol grip stock with checkered iron buttplate and 13 inch length of pull.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 70% original blue and 60% plus vivid casehardened finishes with the balance mostly a grey patina, some light brown speckling on the receiver and some scattered light pitting. The wood is fine with minor dings and scratches throughout, a moderate chip at the toe (mainly in the buttplate), and mostly well-defined checkering. Mechanically excellent.
