Barrel measures 1 -1/4" across muzzle flats and is fitted with an unmarked full length approximately 20X telescope. Deluxe walnut checkered buttstock with smooth steel buttplate. A neat gun. CONDITION: Overall good with some light discoloration on metal. Wood shows 90% remaining of a high lustre varnish with light scratches and dings. Excellent bore and mechanics. DLM
