That is a gun that needs no explaining! It is an honest period engraved gun with papers to back it up. It does not get much better. The work is not the best but it correct for it's source and time. I have seen members go crazy over 1930s factory engraved gun that can hold a candle to this one. Only thing not to like is the buggered screws. If I were to find a better set that matched I would replace them. They are not an indication of history, use, or carry but of a ham fisted guy with a poor screwdriver.
