Here is my standard arms model G. Its in 30 Remington. It also has a rack number, so it may have been issued by some agency. I saw one of these recently and the pump and butt plate were polished, because the previous owner didn't realize that the brass has a black finish, almost to resemble patina or something, but thats original to these. I love how ornate they made the pump and butt plate. So in consequence, that model G looked like crap. I don't know why people want to shine up antiques and old guns, when the patina is natural, and it takes a long time to take place. I myself treasure the old look. Sorry for the crappy photos. I don't have pics of my model M, but I will get that done and post those too.
