Top tray is french fitted for turnscrew, which is in another compartment still wrapped in original tissue. Also included is a Purdey marked square oil bottle. Condition: Excellent, near new, with evidence of only very light field use, retaining essentially all of its finishes on wood and metal, with just a hint of silvering on the sharpest edges, and the lightest of handling marks in wood. Mechanically crisp, except right ejector live with 30″ barrels (most likely needs lubrication). Case and accessories are excellent.
