Has interesting added features of a handmade rear sight behind the rib lettering and an improvised spring attached to the stock to hold the side lever release closed. 30" barrels. Metal parts have a medium patina overall. Hammers are mismatched. Stocks are sanded with heavy checkering added to the wrist.

Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
