Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #124328, 45-70, 22" barrel with a very good bore that shows some moderate pitting and frosting but strong rifling. The metal surfaces are an overall dull gray patina with some small spots of oxidation on the triggerguard and scattered light oxidation staining. The walnut stock rates very good as-cleaned with the inspector' cartouche nearly gone, a faded circled "P" firing proof, a small crack behind the lockplate, a couple dings and a few handling marks. The carbine is equipped with a 1500 yard carbine rear sight. A very good example of a Trapdoor carbine overall. (208678-24) {ANTIQUE} (700/900) SOLD FOR $1,035.00
