MEDIUM FRAME LIGHTNING RIFLE IN .38-40 CALIBER WITH 26" SCARCE ROUND BARREL, #88XXX, MADE 1901
MEDIUM FRAME LIGHTNING RIFLE IN .38-40 CALIBER WITH 26" SCARCE ROUND BARREL, #88XXX, MADE 1901. Overall the blue has thinned on the receiver, barrel and mag tube and mixed evenly with plum and gray. There is still some good blue overall and all markings including the rampant colt on the left side of the frame are fine. The action locks tight and will not "pump" when at full cock. Original buckhorn rear sight with Rocky Mountain blade front sight. Fine wood showing only light handling. Probably had a tang sight on at one time as there is an empty threaded hole in the upper tang behind the hammer. bore is fairly bright with sharp rifling and any roughness very light and scattered.
