Default An interesting detail on a VH 16g

I got this VH 16g in today for a new stock. I quickly noticed a very interesting detail behind the hammer screws that I have never seen before.

I have seen other examples of various little extra embellishments on VH grade guns, just not this particular one.

Figured I would share.

Less than 2 minutes. That is impressive.

We just walked in the door from Maine and heard the "You've got mail" notice.

Probably done to take your eyes away from the "buckboard chatter" marks peened just under the first screw.

Yup, it's amazing how many guys examine their shootin' irons with a hammer.

No. The original stock is being retained by the owner.

Back to the OP, Brian, do you think that extra embellishment is original? It certainly looks it.
