serial #365581, 22 RF, 26? octagon barrel with a very good plus to near excellent bore which shows only some very light frosting, primarily in the grooves. The barrel retains 85-90% original blue, the loss is due to even fading and muzzle wear with a pewter gray area around the barrel?s roll marking which shows remnants of some light oxidation and light pinprick pitting which was very lightly cleaned, likely with steel wool; the markings remain crisp. The magazine tube retains perhaps 92% original blue with the nosecap primarily a blue-gray. The receiver retains perhaps 92-95% original blue with wear on the high edges, contact points and carry point of the frame. The lever and hammer show mottled smoky case hardening, the hammer with strong trace colors. The checkered English walnut buttstock and forend rate very good plus to perhaps near excellent with only minor handling marks from the years, showing added finish many many years ago which has filled the checkering on the forearm somewhat, both pieces of wood exhibiting lovely grain figure. The rifle features special order sights with a Beach combination front, DW King semi-buckhorn rear and a Lyman No. 52 tang sight in place. Overall a very attractive 92 deluxe, very seldom encountered, and with special order sights to boot. (38867-3) {C&R} (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $2,875.00
