The included factory letter confirms rifle configuration, caliber, round barrel and plain trigger. The rifle was received in the warehouse on April 15, 1897 and shipped on June 22, 1897 with 35 other arms to order number 10191. The barrel has a blade front sight and an elevation adjustable rear sight and is marked with the two- line address ahead of the rear sight and "30 W.C.F." at the breech. The upper tang is marked with the three- line Model 1894 patent marking. Smooth forearm and straight grip stock with forend cap, leather sling and crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good as partially refinished. The rifle retains 40% plus original blue finish with a smooth gray patina on the balance (some cold blue touch up on receiver). The refinished wood is fine with a crack on the forearm, a couple minor gouges and some minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
