Keavin,
Not sure what time period you were looking for but this is from an early C grade 16 with Bernard barrels.

The plates on C and D are pretty much the same.

It is nitre blued.

I sent the whole buttstock and forend as well as the trigger guard to be refinished a few years back. He had the metal parts re-engraved and nitre blued by someone in Canada and he did the wood. I was blown away when I got it back.

Well silly me - I neglected to say that I sent it to Chris Dawe in Newfoundland. Sorry about that... apologies to Chris as well.
