The left side of the barrel has the two line address/patent date marking and "44 W.C.F." at the breech.

Mounted with a smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The carbine retains 80% of the faded original blue finish on the barrel and magazine tube, showing some wear and thinning. The receiver has a smooth mottled brown patina with traces of original blue in protected areas and lower tang, and wear from the saddle ring. The hammer retains almost all of the bright original blue finish and the lever has a smooth dark patina. The wood is very good with some scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
