The first thing you'll note when unwrapping the Model H004AF is the bright engraved scrollwork on nickel-plated cover with washed 24 kt. gold images on each side. It ties together the American walnut stock with its carved rural image and brass plate butt and the 20-inch blued octagonal-shaped barrel. The 38½-inch long rifle weighs in at a well-balanced 6¾ pounds. Its smooth and easy lever-action takes the clumsiness out of firing 16 long or 21 short rounds, all in one loading. One receiver panel of the plate cover features the words "American Farmers Feeding the World" engraved in 24-karet gold. The other side has an engraved image is of a farmer working a field behind his horse-drawn plow with a barn in the background. That one, too, is in washed gold.
