Manufactured in 1895 with standard markings and casehardened receiver. Out of the total production of 156,599 Model 1886 rifles, only approximately 1,167 were chambered in this scarce caliber. Fitted with dovetailed German silver blade front and elevation adjustable notch rear sights. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration of the rifle as well as receipt at the warehouse on 24 August 1895 and shipment on 2 July 1896.
Very good, retains 20% original blue on the barrel, faint traces of original case color patterns, and traces original nitre blue on the loading gate with the balance mostly a mottled brown-grey or silvered patina and some light spotting on the barrel. The wood is also fine with some scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
