Manufactured in 1890, this rifle features a special order single set trigger. 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 serial number is on the lower tang. Chambered for the .40-65 W.C.F. cartridge, the rifle has a 26 inch octagon barrel with a German silver blade front sight and adjustable buckhorn rear sight. The barrel and full length magazine were blue. The receiver, lever, hammer and buttplate were casehardened. The forearm and stock are varnished walnut with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good with a smooth mottled brown patina on the metal surfaces, with the exception of a smooth gray patina on the right side of the receiver, which also shows some flashes of original case colors. The wood shows some scattered minor dings, dents and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
