Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #104579, 303 Savage, 26" round barrel with a very good bore showing some light oxidation and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this 1910-made rifle retain about 85% original blue on the barrel showing some spots thinning to silver, moderate freckling and a few small patches of pinprick pitting. The frame retains perhaps 30% original bright blue mostly in the more protected areas with the remainder toned to gray patina with some scratches and freckling. The lever is mostly smooth gray with some freckling, a few spots toning to brown and some hints of original case-hardened colors and the crescent steel buttplate has mostly worn to gray with some light pinprick pitting scattered about. The straight grip walnut perch belly buttstock and schnabel forend remain in near excellent condition with just a few scattered flakes in the finish, minor dings, dents and handling marks. The rifle is sighted with semi-buckhorn rear, German silver front blade and is fitted with sling swivels. This is a very attractive 1899-A rarely seen in such nice condition.
