Manufactured in 1894. Standard two-line address and "40-70 W.C.F." on the top of the barrel at the breech, model designation on the upper tang, and two-line patent marking and serial number on the lower tang. Fitted with dovetailed German silver blade front and elevation adjustable buckhorn rear sights. Mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration as well as receipt at the warehouse on 10 May 1894 and shipment on 21 May 1894 in order number 13912.
Very good, retains 25% plus original blue finish with the balance mostly a plum brown patina and strong flashes of original case colors primarily on the left side of the receiver with the balance a silvery-grey patina speckled with brown. The lightly sanded and reoiled wood is good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout, and a couple hairline cracks in the wrist. Mechanically excellent.
