Finely figured smooth two-piece slab forend and pistol grip stock with checkered iron buttplate and 12 3/4 inch length of pull.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains patterns of original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and some scattered patches of very light surface pitting. The barrel retains 50% of the original Damascus twist brown finish. The finely figured wood is also very good with a couple small hairline cracks, a few scattered minor chips, and otherwise some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
