The piece shows a typical pattern hardwood stock having the butt stock area curving drastically. The barrel is secured to the stock with four barrels bands that are constructed of silver and iron. The rifle shows a typical single side receiver plate with beautiful hand etching. The hammer and trigger are both free to move, but the action does not function.
