Pistol grip Monte Carlo type walnut stock with checkering to grip and Shnarble for-end. The stock could benefit from a professional refinish to transform this rifle.  As there are no faults with the timber itself and any dents or dings are almost negligible, this would be a worthwhile exercise.  The rifle is 42.1/2″ in overall length.  The round blued barrel is a nominal 21.1/2″ in length and the trigger pull is 13.3/4″.  Excellent Parker-Hale finish all over, the white components could benefit from a polish.  The floor plate will open to dump rounds if necessary.  Single stage trigger – non-adjustable.  Rear sight is a flip-up type, adjustable for zeroing.  Fixed blade front sight on cross-hatched ramp to reduce glare.  The barrel is roll marked; ” PARKER-HALE LTD BIRMINGHAM ENGLAND”.  Front and rear sling swivels with adjustable leather sling.
