Two Arabian proofs are stamped on the Damascus barrel near the breech. These two proofs are the only markings on this rifle. The rear sight is a series of peep holes and the front sight is a blade. The full length stock has four brass barrel bands and an ornate brass overlay featured on the buttstock and extending to the rear barrel band. The brass components appear to have been nickel plated. The stock has an attractive grain pattern.
BBL: 33 1/2 inch octagon
Serial Number: NSN
Condition: Good. The barrel retains traces of the Damascus pattern with a smooth dark patina. The brass has an untouched aged patina retaining scattered traces of plating. The two barrel wedges are absent. The stock is good with a cracked wrist, some minor pressure dents.
