SN 91957. Cal 45-70. Standard grade rifle with 26″ oct bbl, full magazine, slightly altered half nickel front sight and 1000 yd rifle ladder rear sight. Mounted with uncheckered, nicely figured American walnut with straight stock & crescent buttplate. This rifle was produced about 1894 when the west was still fairly wild and hunting was a way of life. The firearms of that era usually saw continuous hard service under adverse conditions, often with little or no maintenance. CONDITION: Very good. Bbl retains about 80% blue/brown patina with strong blue in sheltered areas. Magazine tube retains about 90% dulling orig blue. Receiver shows about 25-30% blue in sheltered areas having been cleaned a long time ago. Top & bottom tangs are a gray/brown patina. Lever & hammer retain faded case colors as does the buttplate. Stock has a bruise by the top tang otherwise wood is sound with a few light nicks & scratches and shows an old refinish. Mechanics are crisp, very bright shiny bore. Would make a fine cowboy action shooter. 52061-1 (3,500-4,500) – Lot 3023
