The walnut stock is beautiful; a rounded profile featuring German silver patchbox, trigger guard, buttplate, tailpipe, forend tip and wedge escutcheons. The condition of the stock is excellent with over 98% of its finish remaining. The rifle is sighted with a combination globe front with German silver blade a combination lollipop tang sight with peephole and top sighting notch.
