The Grade 6 grade was introduced about 1875 and at the time was the highest grade produced. It was initially sold for $300 (the $250 and $300 Dollar grade).
The barrels were made of the finest Damascus steel and later were available also with Acme fluid steel barrels. The hammer gun barrel bolsters have the characteristic teardrop sculpture and some hammerless guns have a single bead around the barrel bolsters. The stock is the finest English or Circassian walnut, highly figured with a gold shield and gold pistol grip cap. The stock is elegantly checkered and has fleur-de-lis carved side panels. Stocks were fitted with a skeleton butt plate as standard but recoil pads were an option. The engraving is of the finest quality and dogs or game scenes are a standard motif.
Ejectors were a common option found on Grade 6 hammerless guns, which would make the grade designation AHE.
