serial #147060A, 45-70, 22" round barrel with 3/4 magazine and a bright minty bore. This is a very high condition rifle. The barrel and magazine retain 98% original blue finish overall with most loss being due to some thinning around the muzzle. The action retains 95% original blue with high edge wear and just a tiny amount of fine flaking. The hammer and lever retain 95% strong original color case-hardened finish. The plain walnut buttstock and forend rate excellent with 95% plus original finish remaining and with just a few very light and minor handling marks. The rifle is fitted with a checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate which is standard on the lightweight configuration. The rifle is sighted with a Lyman hunting front with ivory bead and flattop open rear sporting sights. A very crisp example of the lightweight 1886 rifle in a very desirable chambering.
