Model 1860 Henry rifle with standard 24 1/4 inch octagon barrel with integral magazine. Gun metal brass frame with American walnut but stock with brass butt plate. Manufactured in 1864 and at a time of its highest demand these Henry rifles were a treasured possession of Soldiers and westward settlers alike. Rifle has a modified blade front sight and a fixed buck horn rear sight mounted in a newer dovetail in the middle of the two line Henry address. The original dovetail has been expertly filled long ago. CONDITION. Fair overall with barrel being a pleasant brown patina. The Gun metal brass receiver has mellowed to an even mustard coloring. The one piece walnut stock is very good with a strong "Henry Bump " being evident . The wrist area has several very minor slivers missing from being disassembled. The buttplate is serial numbered to the rifle and the four piece steel cleaning rod is still present. The stock has numerous dings and scratches. The rifle fails to open completely, the action needs internal attention. The trigger return spring is a modern replacement . We were unable to remove the butt stock to verify the serial number as the lower tang screw is stripped and is a replacement. TDW
