Description Update (11/15/16): Repaired 1 1/2" crack on left side of upper tang

serial #76743, 38-56, 26" octagon barrel with full magazine and an about very good bore that shows strong rifling with some scattered light pitting in some of the grooves. This is a standard configuration rifle that remains in very nice condition. The barrel and magazine retain about 40% original blue finish blending with a smooth brown patina. The action retains about 50% original color case-hardened finish which has faded some and is turning to a silvery gray in areas and shows nice contrast in others, primarily the left side of action above and to the rear of the loading gate assembly. The plain walnut stock and forend rate near very good with perhaps 25% original finish remaining and having nice surfaces. The rifle is sighted with a Lyman windgauge target front, buckhorn rear and a Lyman folding tang mounted peepsight. The rifle comes with a factory letter confirming the configuration of the rifle and showing receipt in the warehouse on March 10, 1893 and not shipping until October 13, 1893. A nice honest antique 1886 rifle which still shows some nice color. (17889-52) {ANTIQUE} [Allan Wilson Collection] (2500/3500) SOLD FOR $2,990.00
