Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #45472, 348 Win., 24'' barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is a fabulous short-tang rifle. The metal surfaces retain 98-99% original blue with some very faint silvering on the sides of the hammer and a speck or two of light staining hardly worth the mention if it wasn't for the condition of the rifle. The smooth walnut pistolgrip stock and forend rate rate excellent with one or two minute blemishes from resting in a box all these years. The gun is sighted with a hooded ramp front sight and standard open sporting rear sight. Included with the gun is the original two-piece factory cardboard box with intact red, white and blue end label number to the rifle. The box rates very good plus to near excellent with intact corners, light scuffed surfaces and wear along some of the edges. A remarkable short-tang Model 71 in virtually the same condition as the day it left New Haven. (58963-18) {C&R} [Tim Falvey Collection] (3000/4000) Sold For 3220.00
