There are holes drilled for the placement of a false muzzle. Bbl is 32". Gun is heavy weighing in at just under 12-1/2 pounds. Gun is in pretty nice condition with some aging finish remaining to the bbl. The typical grey color to the frame and looks like it has been lightly cleaned at one time. Buttstock is of somewhat fancy wood and in good overall condition. There is a chip missing in the upper right hand corner. Gun is also missing the ram rod and rear sight elevator.
