They come like this. This particular model is made to exactly duplicate the original 1st gen etched panel guns. Black powder frame and correct 3 line patent dates for that time period. The prices of the originals have skyrocketed recently because they are scarce, and if you can find one there's the cost. The better the condition the higher the price and the etched panel plays a huge role in that. Crisp, readable panels command high dollars.
