Manufactured in 1893, with standard two-line address and caliber marking on top of the barrel, three-line model designation/patent date on the upper tang, and serial number on the bottom of the receiver. Fitted with German silver blade front and elevation adjustable semi-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 13 December 1893 and shipment on 8 June 1894 to order number 14885.
Very good, retains 20% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina. The revarnished wood is also very good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout and retaining about 60% of the varnish. Mechanically excellent.
