It arrived! Stock is nicely figured walnut-very attractive. The finish is quite nice on the metal and the wood to metal finish is excellent. The hammers looked very much like the OLD cocking levers. At first I thought they they had shipped the wrong model. Closer inspection proved that I was in err, the hammers DO hit the pins on the outside and force them to move the pin in side. Quite cleverly done. Checkering was EXCELLENT. No runoff/overs - crisp and I think I couold match this up gainst many Spanish and Italian guns. Remember the early EAA BAIKALS? Looked like a kid finished them with a file in the garage? Not any more, The finish was really very nicely done this time. I think I got my money's worth...now to get a weekend where I can try it out!!!
