serial #256392, 8x57JR x 16 Ga., 25 3/4" barrels choked full and even fuller, with bright about excellent bores which show some very light oxidation, and a bright excellent rifle bore. The barrels retain about 97% original blue, the loss is due mainly to light even fading and a bit of breech wear. The frame retains about 92-95% original color case-hardening which is toning in spots and fading to pewter on the fences and carry point of the frame; there is some very sparse, very light oxidation staining as well. Both triggerguard and steel pistolgrip cap retain some strong trace case colors with the forend iron and latch a pewter patina. The checkered walnut, capped pistolgrip butt and splinter style forend rate about excellent with only a small handful of light dings from use afield. Arm is equipped with a Greener style safety, cocking indicators and single set front trigger. The gun is sighted with a simple bead front sight and automatic flip-up rear when rifle barrel is actuated. The lockup is tight and the arm seems to function as well as it did when proofed in April of 1941. A super Sauer and Sohn drilling that one needn't be afraid to take afield once more.
