  • Caliber: .44-40

  • Description: Serial #c947, .44-40, 24" octagon barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some mild freckling within the grooves. This is a handsome rifle that retains traces of the original blue finish on some of the protected areas; mainly at the rear of the frame, along the magazine tube, and the lower barrel facets. The balance of the metal has an overall pewter gray patina that has mild freckling throughout, as well as some shallow peen marks on the left side of the frame. Three letters have been stamped into the barrel on the right side: "ERL". The walnut forend and buttstock have numerous small handling marks and minor blemishes scattered about under a thick added coat of varnish. A small triangular chip is missing from the right side of the wrist, and another at the nosecap on the right side. The action cycles smoothly, and is fully functional. This is a very good example of a rarely seen rifle, and would make a great addition to any collection. Antique
