22 LR, 12” barrel with octagonal breech and a mostly bright near excellent bore showing some mild frosting in the grooves and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this lovely rifle retain about 97% original nickel finish showing some scattered very light flakes mostly along the underside of the barrel toning to gray-brown patina along with a few scattered tiny dings and light handling marks. The left side of the frame retains crisp maker markings and patent dates. The breechblock retains about 95% lovely vibrant case-hardened colors with some areas muting to a smooth gray and most of the loss due to some scattered small areas of old oxidation. The stock retainer also shows generous smoky case-hardened colors while the other small parts retain almost all of their brilliant fire blue with just a little scattered staining. The breechblock closes securely and the action seems to function well mechanically. The included original maroon paper-covered box remains in fine condition showing some scuffing, flaking and mild staining along the edges. The lid end flaps and side walls are a little loose and there is one small hole in the lid near the center. The original exterior lid label is almost entirely intact showing some mild discoloration and a few faint pencil scribblings. Despite their marketing of these arms for over 20 years, just over 4,000 of them were produced. This is a very fine example of these interesting little bicycle rifles almost never seen with their original boxes. (13B10278-1) {C&R} (1800/2200)
