Item # W828-122-191
This is a 2nd model in 22 short. Serial range is 138k. A very aged look to this rifle with the bbl being mostly a dark brown patina.

The forearm is also nice with no cracks or losses. Action is good. Bore is dark. With the nickel trimmings, this would have been a special order rifle.
