Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #113868, 44-40 WCF, 26'' octagon barrel with full magazine and a fair bore showing oxidation and visible rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this rifle are mostly gray-brown patina showing spots of moderate pitting and oxidation staining throughout. The sliding dust cover and a number of the screws are replacements, the bottom of the cartridge lifter has been cleaned at some point and the markings are soft but mostly legible. The plain walnut stocks remain in about good condition with a number of shallow old chips scattered about the buttstock, a tiny crack at the upper tang, scattered dings and handling marks. The rifle is sighted with a semi-buckhorn rear, small German silver blade front and the action is functional albeit a little sluggish. A rather salty but solid third model rifle.
