Finish: brown/casehardened
Grips:
Serial Number: NSN
Condition: Good. Overall the pistol has a smooth gray patina with a mottled gray patina on the trigger guard. Most of the Damascus pattern remains and the engraving is clear. The revarnished stock is very good with some handling marks and an area of chipping near the trigger. Action needs work as the hammer will not hold at the full cock position.
