This is a first year production (1932), all factory original, Model 61 (Serial #450) with round barrel and upper tang tapped for a peep sight. It is in excellent condition (95% plus) with a perfect bore, pre-war small forearm and early rust blue metal finish. There is blue wear showing on a few edges, the magazine tube behind the fore arm, the barrel between fore arm and receiver (one stripe on each side), the muzzle, the rear sight edges and the take down knob. There are also a couple of small flakes and one larger one (pictured), from the finish, near the butt plate that have hardly reached the actual wood. This is a very early gun particularly sought after due to the three digit serial number. We can take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 2% fee.
