    Good condition consistent with age and moderate use. Stock shows minor dings. Original checkering. Engraving clearly visible. Steel buttplate hand-checkered with animal engraving. Barrels are well blacked with much original finish remaining, some discoloration at forend. Bores very good with slight pitting.
    British .303 and metric 6.5 cartridges appear to fit the chambers, however; *we advise that a gunsmith take casting of actual chamber to determine exact measurements of this gun.
