It has a complete Custom 19" barrel that has a machined integral short 1/4 rib with 1 folding sight, An integral front ramp that is near perfect in profile plus an integral barrel lug where the front sling eye attaches and an integral muzzle hook 1" back of the muzzle on the bottom of the barrel that locks into a steel hook inletted into the stock at the forend tip. The action is with a checkered bolt stop release and the original Model 70 floorplate and trigger guard. A full length Mannlicher style stock dated inside July 15, 1965, Full wrap around checkering with a carved border on all sides of the panels, cheekpiece, 14 5/8" LOP over a horn buttplate, 6 Lbs. 11 Oz. as is, The entire action body is very nicely engraved in a Germanic floral pattern with an early Military Eagle scene on the floorplate with a ribbon "There's None Like Us".

The inside of the stock at the bottom of the front recoil lug has a very neat stamp "N". The inletting inside has the appearance of any best English Pre-War Sidelock gun you have had the pleasure to pull apart. This gun remains in 95-96% condition since it was delivered to Mr. Stetson when he graduated from Princeton. I would appreciate any input from you New Jersey gun cranks about George Schielke or Basil Stetson.
