Condition:

Very good overall, with minor traces of blue. There is some mottling where there may have been light rust. The grips are worn smooth, but are sound. The action works well on double-action, and locks up tight, but will not hold on full cock on single action. The bore appears dirty, but has strong rifling.Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
