The casehardened boxlock action shows light border engraving with flourishes at the pivot pin and toplever and features bushed firing pins, double triggers, and a tang mounted manual safety switch. Attractively figured, multi-point checkered beavertail forend with lightly engraved fittings and pistol grip stock with red rubber recoil pad. Length of pull 15 1/8 inches. Weight 10 lbs. 3 oz.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% original blue and casehardened finishes with minor handling evidence and a few areas showing some minor spotting. The wood is very fine with a scratches, some wear to the recoil pad, and sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
