Mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.

Excellent, retains 90% original blue finish, 85% vivid original case colors on the hammer and lever, and 90% original niter blue on the loading gate with the balance a smooth grey patina and a few minor dings on the right of the receiver. The wood appears original and is very good with some light dings and scratches scattered throughout and a few scattered minor dings. Mechanically excellent.
