The rifle is fitted with a Lyman beaded front sight, a filler block in the rear sight dovetail, and Lyman No. 2 combination tang sight. The top barrel flat is stamped with the two-line Winchester legend and "45-70." Import marked on underside of barrel. The lower tang has the two-line patents date and serial number. The non-checkered pistol grip stock and forearm are nicely figured walnut with a Winchester hard rubber grip cap and steel shotgun buttplate. Provenance: The Wayne Connor Collection
Very fine as professionally restored overall, retaining 99% plus of the blue and casehardened finishes with limited handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
