Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #207504, 30 WCF, 26" octagon barrel with a fair bore showing moderate oxidation and some areas of good rifling. The metal surfaces of the magazine tube retain perhaps 60% original blue while the barrel has mostly toned to a mix of blue-gray and pewter patina with small spots of light oxidation staining and some fine light pitting scattered about. The action retains perhaps 65-70% original blue particularly strong on the left side frame with overall toning to pewter-gray patina along with some light oxidation staining, freckling and small dings. The hammer and lever are mostly a mottled silvery patina showing a few trace remnants of case-hardened colors here and there along the lever. The plain straight grip walnut stock and forend remain in very good plus condition showing some moderate oil soaking around the edges of the butt, a few small scattered dings, scratches and light handling marks. The rifle is sighted with a tang-mounted Lyman peep sight, more modern flip-up rear notch and a Lyman ivory bead front. The original rear sight and sight level are included separately. A rather attractive example overall that seems to function well mechanically. (138856-27) {C&R} (800/1200) SOLD FOR $862.50
