A Union Pacific Railroad Henry Rifle Serial Number 7744 Manufactured in 1864 Period Engraved on Left Side of Frame "UPRR"

.44 rim fire, 24" barrel. A good Henry rifle in its own right. This example is made far more interesting by period engraved block initials UPRR indicating that it was once owned by the Union Pacific Railroad Company - undoubtedly to protect workers on the Trans-Continental Railroad. Standard configuration with long range rear sight, sling swivels on butt and barrels. All numbers match including buttstock. 

Condition: Barrel with mostly smooth brown patina with strong traces of bright original blue around and under rear sight. Bolt retains some original blue. Lever and lifter work properly and are not floppy. Hammer with no finish, but crisp. Lever with attractive brown patina matching the trigger. Brass frame has been polished at one time, but side plates fit well. UPRR logo is crisp and obviously professionally engraved. Buttstock with tight crack on both sides where it meets the frame. Chip and crack where it meets the toe of the buttplate. Stock has been sanded at one time, but fits frame and tang very well. Buttplate with old attractive honey colored patina. Magazine spring is short and appears to be a modern replacement. Bore is good. 

EST $ 25000 - 35000
