M73 Rifle, SN267733

M73 Rifle, SN267733

This rifle was produced in 1884 and is cartouched SWP/1884 (S.W. Porter). It hs spent most of its life in a sealed crate or a vault since it does not have any fading of the color case and the bluing is bright and unioform. It was evidently in a museum or collection where a brass button was put over the firing proof as a means of identification. The gun is essentually new, like the day it was made. The bore is pristine and the rifling is sharp and deep. There are a few compression dings near the cartouche from owners mounting the gun on hangers. They are not seen unless you look carefully. Trapdoors in this condition are VERY hard to find!!!. $2195 + S/H
