Nice original shooter.

Makes me wish I wasn’t remodeling a kitchen right now.

To the top!

But money does not come to me year round, my next infusion is several months away. I call that Christmas.

 

Honestly, I would have to check values but do find your offering interesting; I just bought a new Winchester (Miroku) in 44-40 and your example would be a nice partner piece. If nobody bites on this one, contact me towards the end of the year. My funding problem might be resolved.

What is the bore condition and does the condition of the carrier affect it’s proper functioning? Really cool rifle!!

Bore is semi-dull with some visible pitting here and there. carrier is mainly dinged up top and bottom from usage, does not affect functioning.

Don't forget, this rifle is 126 years old. Yes, it's banged up a little, yes it's bore is not perfect. But it's the real deal.

 

Bore is better than a lot of similar age rifles I have seen.
