Barrel retains approximately 90% original factory blue finish, all be it some fine age freckling overall. The magazine is homogenous the forend cap is likewise the brilliant high polish royal blue utilized on the frame retains 90%+ with typical striations.

Buttplate is near new, the lower loading port is grey patina. Action and bore are near new. A lovely and untouched, extremely scare 19th century lever action rifle. From the G. Thomas Puett Collection.
