These were made by A.H. Waters in Milbury, Massachusetts from 1859 to the early 1860's. Total production of 1,500 for the US. Of important note, these guns are the first bolt action rifles procured by the US Government. Standard 3-band configuration. Underhammer. Oval bore. CONDITION: Retains a pleasing patina mixed with approximately 60% original barrel brown. Good case colors on hammer. Markings on tang are good. "U" marked barrel bands have original blue on them. Wood has dings and handling marks. Bore has some very minor pitting. Good mechanical function, although action needs a good cleaning. GR
