Manufactured in 1910. Pinned blade front sight, sporting leaf rear sight, full length magazine tube and saddle ring staple and ring on the left side of receiver (with leather strap). The left side of the barrel is marked with the two-line address/1884 patent date ahead of the rear sight, "NICKEL STEEL" next to the rear sight and "44 W.C.F." at the breech. Winchester oval proof on the top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang is stamped with the three-line model designation/trademark. Mounted on a plain forearm and straight grip stock with carbine buttplate and compartment containing a four-piece cleaning rod.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The barrel and magazine retain 98% plus of the original blue finish. The receiver retains 95% original finish with thinning on the top and bottom, high edge wear and most of the upper tang having a smooth mottled brown patina. The lever has a bronze hue, probably caused by dried grease. The wood is also excellent with a couple of minor pressure dents and light handling marks. The markings remain crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
