Manufactured in 1901 with the standard two-line address/patent marking and "32 CAL" (.32-20) caliber designation on the upper barrel flat.

Mounted with a smooth slide handle and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 40% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey or brown patina and some scattered grease residue. The wood is fine with a few scattered minor dings and scratches, and a series of long hairline cracks visible on the right of the buttstock from the buttplate to the wrist. Mechanically excellent.
