Bolt action carbine particularly beautiful both in terms of appearance and quality.

Entirely matching numbers, even in the internal components, the weapon has remained intact despite its 90 years of age.

Beautiful dark walnut stock, as the "long" model has the floating barrel held away from the stock by an aluminum bushing behind the front sight.
