The accompanying Cody Firearms Museum Records Office serial number search form lists this rifle with a 1/2 octagon barrel in .30 caliber and plain trigger and the following dates: serial number applied for on "6-27-1901," date in on "9-7-1901," and date shipped on "9-11-1901." Dovetailed blade and three leaf sights on a special order half octagon barrel with the two-line address and "30 W.C.F." on the top flat and the two-line nickel steel marking on the upper left flat. The upper tang has the three-line model/patent date marking. The straight grip stock has a crescent buttplate.
Fine. The rifle retains 60% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. Traces of original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The wood is fine with a couple missing small surface chips and a number of scattered moderate dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
