The top of the barrel ahead of the rear sight is marked with the two-line address/King's Improvement patent dates and "CAL 45-60" at the breech. The upper tang is marked "MODEL 1876" flanked by fancy brackets. The serial number is on the lower tang and the cartridge elevator is marked "45-60". Mounted with a smooth walnut forearm with an iron forend cap and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate with compartment (cleaning rod not included).
Good. The metal surfaces have a smooth mottled brown patina. The wood is also good with most of the original varnish remaining and showing scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
