This beautiful repeating rifle is the pattern which led the way in westward expansion in the United States for many decades. It is in very strong overall condition with few flaws, crisp markings, strong bore and exceptionally crisp mechanics overall. This weapon was in the same Virginia collection from 1938 until 1972 when it was inherited by a family member. It has been in the same hands, unfired, for many decades.
The weapon is chambered in the iconic .44-40 cartridge that was incredibly popular in rifles, carbines and Colt revolvers. If you want a classic beauty in your collection, you just found it! These weapons rarely have the original dust cover or a tang sight–this beauty has both!
