Fixed blade front sight and notch rear sight. The action is fed from a 10 round internal magazine and is loaded by charger clips

Very fine, with 70% of the blue finish. The side panels of the frame have turned a brown patina and very good overall. Grips are good, with some pressure dents and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
