Item Description: Translate description
serial #1975, 45-85-285, 22" round barrel with full magazine and a bright excellent bore. This is a very fine example of the big standard weight large frame saddle ring carbine. The gun shows British proofs on both the barrel and action and shows a saddle ring staple on the left side of action. The condition is very fine with the barrel and magazine retaining about 95% original blue finish which is thinning evenly and blending with a smooth brown patina mostly on the magazine. The action shows a crisp rampant Colt on the left side and retains about 85% original blue which also just shows light thinning and is blending with a smooth brown patina in thin areas. The hammer shows strong original color case-hardened finish. The plain walnut buttstock and original checkered two-piece forend rate near excellent with 90% plus original finish remaining and with some light bruises in the butt and some minor flattening to some of the checkered points. The original carbine buttplate retains about 75% original blue finish with most loss on highest points of toe and heel. The rifle is sighted with a Barleycorn front and reverse mounted carbine rear sight. Large frame Lightning carbines are very unusual as they are still big heavy guns and not practical for typical "carbine use". A very fine example of these rare Colt rifles. Investment quality.

Estimate: 8000 - 12000
