serial #263860, 32-20 Win, 7 1/2? barrel with an about very good bore which shows strong rifling but with some light oxidation and a few widely scattered light pits, one or two which may be a bit more moderate. The metal surfaces retain about 92-95% of what appears to be original nickel, the areas of loss flaked to a brown or plum patina, the cylinder with a prominent turn ring. All of the markings remain crisp but there are a number of moderate scar marks on the underside of the barrel in the area of the base pin, no doubt in an effort to remove or re-install it at some point. All of the edges and screw holes remain crisp but the nickel may indeed be an antique re-nickel from the period of use. The gun wears ?Pointer Pup? faux stag grips which rate very good plus, but fit slightly undersize, they do give the gun a cool 50s-cowboy look however. The arm will need a bit of mechanical attention as the half cock notch is worn, as-is the loading notch but it otherwise times and locks up appropriately. Manufactured in 1905, this may be an excellent candidate for the cowboy action range after a thorough inspection and a bit of service by a competent ?smith. (38839-2) {MODERN} (2000/4000) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
