Four, 6" drop-down, Lancaster-oval-bore barrels with nickel silver blade

front sight. Broad V-notch rear sight. Left-side thumb-lever double-top-latch

barrel release. Automatic simultaneous ejection. Tranter-type double-action

advance via folding trigger spur extending through detachable

triggerguard, and with single-action firing. Checkered walnut birdshead

grips. Striated backstrap. Lanyard loop. Assembly number 33 on various

internal small parts. Barrel set mostly turned brown and frame blue

flaked to about 50%. But, breech face shows no sign of the pistol ever

having been fired. All bores simply excellent. Excellent mechanical
