Description:

Manufactured in 1891, a carbine such as this would have been a very desirable arm in the American West, not only with trapper's, but anyone looking for impressive firepower in a small and mobile package. This example is a Third Model with integral dust cover guide and dust cover with serrations at the rear. The top of the barrel is faintly marked with the two-line address/King's patent marking and the caliber marking at the breech. The upper tang has the model marking and the lower tang is marked with the serial number. It is fitted with a pinned German silver blade front sight, a folding ladder rear sight, and a saddle ring on the left of the receiver. It is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a trapdoor carbine buttplate (cleaning rod not included). Provenance: The Brandhorst Collection

Rating Definition:

Good, showing the brown and dark grey patina of a trusted frontier arm and some scattered patches of light pitting with softened markings overall. The wood shows the weathered appearance of a Western survivor with minor handling marks scattered throughout and a few hairline cracks. Mechanically fine.
