The left side of the scope is marked with the Zrak logo over "0301009/ON-6X32" and is equipped with elevation and windage adjustments with graduation markings. All machined parts, hooded front inverted "V" sight and tangent rear sight graduated to 2,000 meters, all blue finish with a polished bolt assembly, slotted cleaning rod and mounted with a pistol grip walnut stock with full matching hand guard. There is a small boxed "5" in the grip area.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The rifle retains 95% original blue finish with some minor thinning and edge wear. With the exception of a number of small punched holes on the right side of the buttstock and moderate chips on the toe, the wood is very fine with a few minor dings and dents. The action is excellent. The scope is excellent with clear optics. The markings remain crisp and clear.
