Manufactured in 1895. It has dovetailed blade and elevation adjustable sights on a barrel marked with the two-line address and "45-90 WCF," an upper tang marked "MODEL 1886," a lower tang marked with the two-line patent dates information and the serial number and a solid crescent buttplate.

Very fine as professionally restored overall. The barrel, bolt and magazine retain 98% of the blue showing some speckling of patina. The remaining metal surfaces retain nearly all of the case colors. The wood is fine with some minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
