Gun is strikingly MINT and unfired!

Note: These two Huntsman S Masters (Serial numbers 309030S and 314974S) represent two of the three possible barrel / front sight combinations.

This photo taken earlier than the others shows the gold detail on the left side of the slide that glare destroyed in the other photos.
