"The best make is Gastinne-Renette's"
- Walter Winans
As Pictured & Described in the book The Art of Revolver Shooting by Winans
CONDITION: Exceptionally fine with an attractive French gray to the metal, attractive natural aged patina on the silver, light aging to the silver gilt creatures, and generally only light handling and storage wear. The detailing throughout remains truly spectacular. The stock is equally fine and has crisp carving and minimal handling and storage marks. Mechanically excellent. Aside from the cracked lid and trim, the case is very fine and retains crisp carving and engraving, minor contact wear and staining on the lining, and generally minor age and storage related wear. The accessories are in the same exceptionally fine condition as the pistols and retain crisp engraving and carving. The only blemish to the accessories being a small chip to the head of the turnscrew where the reversible blade slots into place.
