Item Description: Translate description
serial #60614, 40-60 WCF, 28” octagon barrel with a bright about excellent bore which shows only a couple widely scattered spots of light pitting, one most prominent halfway down the bore. This lovely rifle retains about 98% original bright blue overall. There is some very light high edge wear present, chiefly along the magazine tube hanger and sharp edges of the receiver. The forend nosecap shows a bit of a rub mark along its right side and there are the oddly scattered very light handling mark here or there but otherwise, rifles this fine are very few and far between. The loading gate shows strong pale fire temper blue and the cartridge lifter is a dull goldenrod patina with strong marking, there also being a few very widely scattered spots of light oxidation here or there, they are really unobtrusive. The hammer and lever show some really strong color case-hardening with toning to a nice silvery and smoky case-hardened patina along the outer edge of the lever. The buttstock rates very good to very good plus with strong original varnish and the very light dings and handling marks one would expect from the years. The forend shows a bit more varnish wear, consistent with carry, but with fewer handling marks. The mechanism is crisp and tight and overall, the arm appears as though it may have seen some limited carry but little use. The original silver blade front sight is in place as is the correct ladder-style rear sight. The screw heads are all unmolested and appear unturned. The included factory letter confirms the configuration and shows shipment in November of 1890. Really a superb example of these normally hard-used, hard-working rifles, perhaps the best this writer has seen in the last ten years. If you are searching for the best 1876 available, this gun is it. (37044-3){ANTIQUE}

Estimate: 25000 - 30000
