Manufactured in 1889. The top barrel flat is marked with the two line address ahead of the rear sight and "40-82 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 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.

Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel and magazine retain 40% original thin blue finish with areas of smooth brown and plum patina. The remaining metal surfaces have a gray patina with some minor oxidation on the receiver. The wood is also very good with some scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action functions fine, but is a little stiff.
