Condition:

Good overall condition. The wood shows a lot of wear. The lock functions, although the frizzen spring is weak. There are remains of pitting on the steel, and the gun shows signs of use over multiple generations. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
