Nicely figured, multi-point checkered forend with wedge fastener and round knob pistol grip stock with blank inscription oval and smooth steel buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 40% of the original browning with some spotting and strong Damascus pattern, much of the blue on the trigger guard, buttplate and top lever, 50% case colors on the action, light handling evidence overall, a plug repair in the pistol grip, and sharp checkering on the wood. Mechanically excellent.
