The top lever displays light geometric engraving patterns retaining 97% original blue and the horn triggerguard remains in excellent condition. The checkered walnut pistolgrip buttstock with a round shadowline left side cheekpiece rates near excellent displaying some light scattered handling marks along with missing sliver near the right side of the lower tang; there is a very thin crack emanating from the upper tang that one must really look for; the buttstock appears to have been lightly refinished many years ago.

The buttstock which has been slightly shortened and is fitted with a Pachmayr White Line hard rubber recoil pad which has a 1/2" aluminum spacer between the butt and pad; it provides a length of pull of 14 1/4".

Included is a pair of 1" claw mounts which support a Weaver V4.5-B 1.5-4.5X rifle scope that has a duplex reticle having bright excellent optics. The gun seems to lock up well and would likely be an excellent companion for fall birds and the odd coyote or whitetail. (178198-1) {C&R} (1800/2200) SOLD FOR $2,185.00
