The face of the recoil shield shows lots of bright original color case-hardening clearly indicating that this shotgun has been very little used. The checkered pistolgrip buttstock and forend are of walnut and rate very good with a mixture of original finish and a little added light finish mostly toward the butt where there is a very nicely repaired chip at the toe. The gun locks up tight with opening lever well right of center. The gun points nicely with a 14 1/4" length of pull over its correct dogs head buttplate and with drops of 1 3/4" and 2 7/8".
