Item Description: Translate description
serial #1100, 44-77, 28" octagon barrel with a bright minty bore. This is an absolutely top shelf Ballard Pacific rifle. The barrel retains 95% rich original blue finish with most loss due to light silvering on the high edges. The action retains 90% original color case-hardened finish which has softened and has a wonderful honest appearance. The rifle features original adjustable double set triggers and ring lever. The walnut buttstock shows nice figure near the buttplate and rates excellent with 95% original finish remaining. The forend is in similar condition with only the lightest carry wear, the original crescent steel buttplate retains 85% faded original color case-hardened finish. The original hickory wiping rod is present beneath the barrel mounted in factory ferrules. The rifle is sighted with a German silver blade Rocky Mountain front and standard sporting open rear sights. While the breechblock protrudes slightly from the bottom of the action, it is indeed original and is numbered to the rifle as is the extractor. The rifle comes with bullet mould blocks, some cast projectiles and brass cartridge cases. These Pacific rifles were working guns and saw lots of use on the American plains during the last quarter of the 19th century. This rifle remains in remarkable, all original, untouched condition. It would be very difficult to upgrade this rifle, clearly one of the finest Pacific Ballards extant. An investment quality rifle worthy of the finest collection of American single shot rifles.

Estimate: 7000 - 9000
