Lot 3019

Manufactured in 1894. The top barrel flat is marked with the two-line address ahead of the rear sight and "45-70" at the breech. The upper tang is marked "--MODEL 1886--". The 1884 and 1885 patent dates are marked on the lower tang directly behind the trigger, and the serial number is at the end. It features a dovetailed blade front sight, adjustable buckhorn rear sight, special order double set triggers, deluxe checkered walnut forearm and pistol grip stock with a shotgun butt, blue barrel and full length magazine, and casehardened remaining parts. The accompanying factory letter verifies the rifle configuration, caliber, octagon barrel, double set trigger, checkered pistol grip stock and shotgun butt with a rubber buttplate (the rifle currently has a steel buttplate), that it was received in the warehouse on July 19, 1894, and that it shipped in order number 16466 the same day.

Estimate: 5500.00-7500.00
