Description:

Manufactured in 1898. The included Cody Firearms fax record confirms rifle type, caliber, octagon barrel and special order double set triggers. The rifle was received in the warehouse on October 20, 1900 and shipped on October 22, 1900. Blade front sight, elevation adjustable rear sight and full length magazine tube. The top barrel flat is marked with the two line address ahead of the rear sight and "45-90 WCF" at the breech. The upper tang is marked "-MODEL 1886-" and the lower tang has the serial number and two line patent date marking. Smooth forearm and straight grip stock with forend cap and crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus. The rifle retains traces of original blue finish with a smooth brown-gray patina on the balance. The tang filler screw is missing. The wood is fine with a sliver of wood missing near the upper tang and some minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
