Item Description: Translate description
serial #380, .36 caliber, 24" round barrel with octagonal breech and a dark bore. This rifle features matching numbers on the barrel, loading lever, plunger, frame and cylinder. This rifle has the early adjustable rear sight mounted in topstrap along with a cleaning rod mounted on left side of barrel. The top of the barrel bears proper standard marking and metal surfaces retain a dark blue/gray patina on barrel and more of a brown patina on frame and cylinder. Barrel markings and serial numbers remain legible. The left side of the barrel has a cleaning rod mounted and the left side of the frame just ahead of cylinder has a Colt's Patent oiler. The oiler looks to be a nicely made, later replacement. The lower tang shows a repair at the frame with the piece to rear of that area appearing to be a replacement. The stock is beautifully shaped and formed and shows nice rich color but when removed it appears to be made of southern pine stained to this color. While this rifle has some apologies, these early Colt revolving rifles are rare and this would make a perfectly acceptable example to fill a hole in a collection. (16889-175) {ANTIQUE}
