Manufactured in 1895. The top barrel flat is marked with the two line address ahead of the rear sight and "40-65 W.C.F." at the breech. The upper tang is marked "-MODEL 1886-" and the two patent dates are marked on the lower tang directly behind the trigger and the serial number at the end. German silver blade front sight and adjustable buck horn rear sporting sight. Blue barrel and full length magazine, with casehardened remaining parts, and mounted with a smooth walnut forearm with steel forend cap and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.
Good. The barrel has a smooth dark patina with scattered traces of thin original blue finish. The magazine tube has been cleaned bright, and shows some discoloration a couple of very small dents. The remaining metal surfaces have a smooth mottled gray and silver gray patina. The wood is also good with some scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
