The action is also marked on the right with "FARQUHARSON'S/PATENT/576". Nicely figured, multi-point checkered forend with ebony tip and pistol grip stock with horn grip cap, blank inscription oval, and red rubber recoil pad. Includes a Zeiss Diavari-C 3-9x36mm scope.
Very fine as professionally restored, showing 99% blue and casehardened finishes, some slight chipping along some of the edges of the wood, some very scattered handling evidence, and sharp re-cut checkering. The scope optics are sharp. Mechanically excellent.
