serial #56454, 30 WCF, 26'' round barrel with full magazine and an about good bore showing some moderate oxidation and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this lovely rifle retain nearly 95% original blue showing some minor thinning along the barrel and magazine tube, high edge wear along the action, light scratches and the bottom of the action toning to gray patina. The extractor and crescent buttplate are a silvery-gray patina and the loading gate retains some vibrant fire blue. The hammer and lever show some smoky remnants of case-hardened colors mostly toned to silvery-gray case-hardened patina with some minor scattered freckling. The plain walnut stocks remain in near excellent condition showing lightly worn finish, a few small dings and handling marks. The rifle is sighted with a Lyman No. 6 folding rear sight that has been slightly modified during the period of use with evidence of a sporting rear sight having once been present, a tall Lyman ivory bead front sight and Lyman tang peep sight. The action seems to function very well mechanically. This is a wonderful antique rifle in near excellent overall condition. (138932-2) {ANTIQUE} (2500/4000) Sold For 2990.00
