This fantastic classic icon of military weaponry retains 70%+ original blue finish overall and has a strong bore and crisp mechanics. It appears to have all original and matching parts. It actually came from the estate of a WW2 Army officer who likely was issued the firearm at that time. The serial number places the date of manufacture 1918. All markings are crisp and legible and the weapon will clean a bit better than it looks via the camera, but I leave that to the discretion of the collector. FFL or C&R required for transfer and complimentary shipping to the lower 48 United States. Examples in this high grade of condition are NOT easy to locate.
