Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #318, 45-60, 28" octagon barrel with full magazine and a good bore that shows rifling throughout with pitting throughout. The barrel shows the "WHITNEYVILLE" single line address along with "KENNEDY". This rifle is in standard configuration with an early "S" shaped lever. The barrel and magazine retain a pleasing even gray brown patina with all markings remaining clear and legible. The action shows a gray patina overall with some oxidation staining, mostly around the frame screws. The screw slots are very good with just a couple showing very light wear. The plain walnut buttstock and forend rate very good with a mixture of original finish and some added light oil finish remaining along with the usual light handling marks. The rifle is sighted with a German silver blade Rocky Mountain front and standard open sporting rear. A good solid and completely honest example of the large frame Whitney Kennedy with "S" lever.
