Item Description: Translate description
serial #21, 42 Berdan, 30" octagon barrel with a bright excellent bore. This rare American target rifle is in fabulous, all original condition. The barrel is marked with the simple address "F. WESSON MAKER / Worcester, Mass" and retains about 70% original blue with the loss being streaks of gray patina, apparently from some contaminant coming in contact with the metal. While there are a couple patches of light pitting, the streaked areas remain smooth. The action retains 98% strong original nickel plated finish with some light scratches in and not through the finish. The checkered walnut buttstock and key fastened forearm are of nicely figured American black walnut and rate excellent with 90% plus original finish, strong checkering and perhaps a little added light finish. The rifle features a checkered steel shotgun buttplate and the forend has a nickel plated steel cap. The rifle is sighted with a windgauge front, blank in rear slot and what looks to be a long range tang mounted peepsight. The rifle is also equipped with a heel position base for the tang sight. This rifle is illustrated and discussed on page 235 in volume three of the three volume set of books Frank Wesson Gunmaker. A rare and very fine Wesson target rifle. (16651-14) {ANTIQUE} [John and Jan Wills Collection]
