Physical Description

It not only looks like the real gun it has both the weight and robustness as well. The major difference is in the quality of the woodwork. This example is of standard boxwood, not the traditional walnut. The metalwork is cast zinc alloy with boxwood detachable butt, pistol grip and hand guard. The magazine is a faithful replica but is only capable of taking replica cartridges.
