Walnut stock with crescent steel buttplate.

Top screw in upper tang a possible replacement. Action functions. Wood with light wear to forearm and heavy wear to buttstock suggesting time spent in a scabbard. Sliver chip on wrist at upper tang.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
