This is a good condition Volcanic Rifle with 25" barrel. The barrel has fine markings and is primarily a gray patina with slight areas of very minor roughness, nothing that really detracts from the over-all look of the gun. The engraved frame is in a beautiful, untouched patina. The only feature that some might complain about on this gun is that the wood has been cleaned a little too aggressively. That might be true, but the over-all look of the gun is quite pleasing and this aggressive cleaning is part of the gun's history, just like a scratch or a dent. Volcanic Rifles are climbing the food chain in terms of their popularity. You'd be hard pressed to find a better gun at a price more fair than this.
