  1. I found this at an estate sale and couldn't help but buy it. How many times does a person come across an original Colt Burgess rifle. As is, its not in shooting condition as it needs some parts, firing pin, and hammer spring. A number of the screws are not original. The rest of the major parts are original and in good condition. Although its a toggle link design, it has only one hefty toggle link compared to the '73 design. What is interesting is the way the bolt and lever come out. It's the same way a Win. '92/'94 come apart. Interesting that Colt did this in the 1880's and Win did it in the 1890's. The bolt has an extractor at the top but the small cylinder on the front of the bolt is spring loaded and ejects the spent cartridge. The spring actuated loading gate is really a neat feature.
