Manufactured in 1884 as a Third Model with integral dust cover rail and dust cover with serrations at the rear. Two-line address/King's patent marking and "44 CAL" on the top barrel flat, model designation on the upper tang, serial number on the lower tang, and "44 CAL." on the bottom of the cartridge elevator. Fitted with German silver blade front and two-leaf express rear sights (half of one leaf broken/absent). Mounted with a smooth forearm and a nicely figured straight grip stock with a trapdoor crescent buttplate (cleaning rod not included).
Very good, retains 25% of the original blue finish, stronger in sheltered areas, with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey or brown patina and some scattered small patches of light pitting. The wood is also very good with numerous scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
