Manufactured in 1901. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration including barrel length, plain trigger, plain checkered pistol grip stock, Lyman tang sight (listed as "rear sight" in letter), half magazine, hard rubber shotgun buttplate, sling swivels, and extra light. The letter also states that the rifle was received at the warehouse 2 February 1902 and shipped from the warehouse the same month.
Very fine, retains 85% plus original blue finish and 80% plus of the vibrant original case colors on the lever and hammer with the balance a smooth grey patina. The wood is fine with numerous minor dings and scratches throughout. Mechanically excellent.
