No question in my mind it is original. I have seen almost identical photos before showing the engraving in very similar condition. Turns out it is the way the camera sees it, lighting, etcetera. And I have no problems with the screws being in the white. Darn nice gun!

It is very unlikely. Look closely at all that you see in this photo; I have never seen British bottom plate and trigger plate screws in original condition that were not either color case hardened or blacked via some method, not to mention the fore-end iron.

Nice looking gun though!

I agree with this observation by imperdix. If you look at all of the engraving on the rest of the gun, it appears that the engraving on the areas where the engraving is cut into the blued metal doesn't even match the other engraved parts of this gun. bushveld makes some good points too. A closer look with a loupe would be the best way to confirm things.

A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
