Manufactured in 1897 with standard markings. Fitted with pinned blade front and folding ladder rear sights, and a saddle ring fitted the left of the receiver. Mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate.
Very fine, retains 70% plus of the original blue finish, 60% of the original case colors, and 40% of the original niter blue with the balance having thinned mostly to a smooth brown or grey patina with an overcoat of protective varnish. The wood is also very fine with a few scattered light dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
