My pictures really don't do the gun it's justice. I've been trying to figure out why it looks like there is "rust" on loading lever and hammer. There is no discoloration at all on any of the parts. In fact, the loading lever is highly polished and throws off some glare. In any event, I just couldn't pass this one up, being in the condition it is in.
I wish the Swiss made a larger variety of revolvers and semi-autos. They really have to be the world's best craftsmen. I don't know what purpose the easy-access, hinged plate serves - I just think the makers wanted an easy way to show off the internals, sort of like a clear caseback on a swiss watch.
