12mm Galand caliber, 4.875" octagonal barrel, S/N 13517. Nickel finish, checkered hardwood grips with lanyard ring in butt. Marked GALAND/PAIRS in an oval cartouche on the left barrel flat at the frame junction, otherwise unmarked except for the serial number on lower left of frame and a Liege proof mark on cylinder. Frame, cylinder and action lever all engraved with loose foliate scrolls.
Very good as refinished. Retains most of a later nickel finish with some wear and loss, particularly a thumb-sized patch of flaked loss on the top of the barrel. Some scattered surface oxidation is present, mostly on the backstrap. Markings slightly obscured by the polishing and refinishing process. Mechanically functional, very good bore with some oxidation and lightly scattered pitting. Grips very good with crisp checkering.
