It is fitted with a pair of smooth grips. Includes a hardwood case with Cogswell & Harrison interior label, oiler, key, screwdriver, and cleaning rod.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% of the original blue finish and 80% plus of the vibrant original case colors with the balance having thinned to a smooth brown or grey patina and a crisp etched panel. The grips are fine with numerous minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some scattered minor handling/storage marks.
