Model 1873 Rifle SN175296

Model 1873 Rifle

This Model 1873 rifle, SN175296, is an excellent example of post 1877 rifle production. It is not a starred rifle, but made with all new parts with a cartouche date of SWP/1881 clearly seen on the side of the stock. Likewise, the circled P is also very sharp. The stock has very few dings and all of them are shallow. However, there is a small repair next to the circled P. The patch is about the size of a dime. The color case is almost gone on the top of the breech block, but it is VERY strong on the under side. Likewise, the tang has a modeled color. The barrel retains about 75% of its original blue, and has a M83 front sight protector in place. the lock and hammer have a blue/gray modeled appearance and the trigger assembly and butt plate retain less than 50% of its original blue. The bore of the gun is pristine with shallow and sharp rifling lands. $1195 + S/H. The buyer has several days to inspect the gun, and if not satisfied, it can be returned for a full refund.
