serial #152010, 22 W.R.F, 24" octagon barrel with a very good bright bore with light pitting. The barrel and magazine tube retain 90% plus evenly thinning original blue finish with loss on the high edges. The frame retains 85% original blue with the balance flaking to a mottled brown patina; the left side of frame/carrier guide shows a crack and has professional or factory repair with two tiny pins; odd but appearing to be a factory modification or repair. The smooth walnut straight grip buttstock and grooved forend rate very good as refinished with dings and scratches from the years. The buttstock is fitted with its original crescent steel buttplate which shows a mottled brown patina. The rifle wears the original blade front sight, as well as the original adjustable sporting rear sight with elevation screw intact. This rifle was manufactured in 1902.
