Highly figured, oak leaf and acorn fish scale checkered forend with engraved fittings and pistol grip stock with teardrop carved flats, horn grip cap, raised cheek piece, and Pachmayr White-Line recoil pad.

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, retaining 99% original blue and coin finishes with minor handling evidence, a plum hue to the barrel, a few small pressure marks in the wood, and sharp fish scale checkering. The case is very good. Mechanically excellent.
