The floorplate is engraved in the style of Robert Swartley with a lion standing over a zebra carcass and the trigger guard has a hunter poised to take the shot in a prone position.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as upgraded to the current configuration, retaining 98% plus Griffin & Howe applied blue with minor handling evidence, a few small dings and scratches in the wood, and sharp checkering on the stock. The scope optics are sharp. Mechanically excellent.
