We try to describe the percentage of finish neither optimistically nor conservatively but exactly as it is.Back Action - A sidelock action where the mainspring is mounted rearward towards the butt.The percentage of original blue finish remaining is a quick indicator of the condition of a gun.In our condition descriptions, 98%blue means raw steel is showing through 2% of the overall blued surface.Photo %blue - Bluing is a thin surface coloring, induced either by heat or by polishing and the repeated application of an acid solution to form a type of blue-black rust.Bluing reduces the reflectivity of polished steel parts and helps inhibit further rust.

Anson Forend Release - A catch for securing the forend to the barrels of a break-open gun, operated, via a longitudinal rod, by a pushbutton exposed at the very tip of the forend. Anvil - A small metal block, inside a Boxer primer, against which the blow of the firing pin causes the priming compound to be pinched sharply---and thus detonated.All of the categories began with number one and went up sequentially.We unfortunately did not have the data to say when they sold, but the smaller the number, the older it is.The back action is often used in double rifles where the need for strength requires as little steel as possible be removed from the bar of the action.Photo Backboring - Enlarging the internal diameter of a shotgun barrel beyond its proper standard (.729" in 12 gauge) by reaming, in an effort to reduce the recoil or to improve the shot pattern.
