The case with the model is of later manufacture, out of wooden covered with leather on the external one and lined with green felt on the interior, it contains:
- Its original numbered stock and cheek rest. The leather used as a holster has been remade to the model.
- Its false wooden magazine, used for maintenance without disassembling which includes three elements of cleaning rods of which one built in box with grease.
- An oil can.
The detachable magazine is located in the handle which is a novelty for the time. The barrel is slightly moved back, the breech is "in knee", the stick comes to be fixed there like a ball joint.
Patented in 1893, it is one of the 3100 specimens manufactured from 1894 to 1896 in Berlin by Ludwig Loewe & Company.
