Manufactured in 1898 in the desirable .45-90 WCF caliber. Blade front sight and semi-buckhorn rear sight with the two line address ahead of the rear sight and "45-90 W.C.F." at the breech. Upper tang is marked "-MODEL 1886-" and the lower tang has the patent dates marking and the serial number. Smooth forearm and straight grip stock with forend cap and crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Good. The rifle retains mostly a mottled brown-gray patina overall. There is some minor pitting and the tang sight filler screw is absent. The sanded and re-oiled wood is fine with a small missing chip on the wrist and a few minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
