Manufactured in 1893, the second year of production with standard markings. Fitted with dovetailed German silver blade front and elevation adjustable buckhorn rear sights, and mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.
Fine, retains 75% plus original high polish blue finish, 40% original case colors, and 60% original nitre blue on the loading gate with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The ill-fitting wood is very good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout, a few light chips around the tangs, and a couple of horizontal hairline cracks visible in the wrist. Mechanically excellent.
