The swamped octagon barrel has eight-groove rifling, blade and notch sights, and a short bent tang. The distinctive lock has a pivoting pan cover, "M-R-K-" signed at the center, floral engraving, external full-cock sear, and "1678" ahead of a lion mask at the tail. The furniture is mainly sheet iron aside from the heavier sweeping trigger guard. The side plate is in the shape of a lion. The cheek has "MRK" in raised relief carving, and an "TN/254" inventory marking is on the left side of the butt. Provenance: The Henk L. Visser Collection; The Collection of Joe M. Wanenmacher Jr
Very good with mottled gray patina and mild pitting, distinct markings and engraving, and mild overall wear. The stock is also very good and has some cracks and repairs mainly in the right side of the butt and general minor scratches and dings. Mechanically fine.
