Standard blade front sight and folding ladder rear sight without volley notch. It has a matching electro-stencil serial numbered "N.S." marked bright polished bolt. It is fitted with a two-bolt walnut pistol grip "C" type stock with a boxed "D.A.L." inspection cartouche stamped on the left wrist, a circled "P" proof on the front of the pistol grip, and stamped with the matching serial number on the bottom of the buttstock.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 85% original parkerized finish and half of the original blue finish on the barrel bands and rear sight base, with smooth brown patina on the balance and a few patches of light pitting. Stock is very good as sanded and re-oiled, with a repaired split visible in the wrist, and scattered scratches and dents. Mechanically excellent.
