CONDITION: Very good to fine, all matching including grips. No orig finish remains being an even gray/brown patina overall with some fine pitting. Grips show moderate to heavy wear with minor nicks & scratches and retain most of a restored finish. Left grip has a chip at the rear edge. Hammer screw may be a replacement. Occasionally will not rotate to full cock. It appears that the sear spring is weak and will not engage the sear notch, otherwise mechanics are fine, worn dark bore. 4-30451 JR310 (10,000-15,000)
