It is fitted with raised dovetailed Lyman beaded blade front, replacement Sheard three-leaf (one a folding ladder) rear, and receiver mounted Lyman peep sights.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 30% original blue finish with the balance, primarily on the receiver, lever and buttplate, showing a mixture of brown and grey patinas. There are some tool type marks and battering visible on the right side of the takedown collar. The wood is also very good with some scattered minor dings and scratches and some visible mild handling wear in the varnish on the forearm. Mechanically excellent. The case is good with some moderate wear and an absent buckle.
