ALMOST as new with only minimal and very minor marks or blemishes. Even the original High Gloss varnish finish is still in excellent condition right through. Pretty remarkable given this IS from a gun bought brand new and used by the same man all these years.
Quite a light base general colour with a strong straight grain right through the grip area too. There is some Decent Colour Contrast along with some Nice Cross Highlights to the butt. The usual Fox Cut or Skip Chequering detail on these higher grade stocks. A feature I always like to see as it always elevates the appearance for me. The same applies to the Rosewood Forend Tip and Grip Cap especially with the white spacer. Original PH recoil pad too.
One of these hit close to and possibly over £400 on that well known public auction site back in February 2020. Not as nice and not as good or clean.
