Manufactured in 1897.

Replacement Stewart front sight, three leaf rear (middle 100 yard leaf absent), and short range tang mounted peep sight.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel, magazine tube and receiver retain 60% original thin blue finish mixed with smooth brown and gray patina. The hammer and lever have a smooth mottled gray patina and the buttplate has a smooth silver gray patina. The wood has been sanded and refinished and remains very good with only a couple of minor dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
