serial #510584, 45-70, 32 5/8" barrel with a good bore that shows scattered pitting and oxidation but strong rifling. The metal surfaces are an overall dull gray patina with scattered oxidation staining. The walnut stock rates very good with an added oil finish, a pair of strong "NGR" markings on top of butt, a strong 1890-dated cartouche, a strong circled "P" firing proof, a couple chips, scattered dings and handling marks. The rifle is equipped with a Buffington rear sight, a hooded front sight and a correct ramrod bayonet. The hammer and breechblock appear to function well and this is a solid late production Trapdoor rifle. (208839-6) {ANTIQUE} (400/600) SOLD FOR $575.00
