Early (and heavy) toplever rifle with good damascus barrels retaining original moon sight and 4 leaves but lacking original elevator sight (optimistic for this caliber ... 577 2 3/4"). Marked "A. Hartmann" but this is a Bonehill "Interchangeable" with patent clip lump rounded non-ejector action, intercepting sears, Greener bolt, bushed strikers, surprisingly still tight. Action, forend iron & latch, & toplever have fresh case colors and retain fancy border engraving w. a bit of scroll here and there. Triggers & bow have fresh charcoal blue. V good bores with unusually narrow lands, 44" twist indicating a short bullet, minimal light frosting, 28" bbls have good fresh brown with residual pitting under forend edge. Forend wood is good, buttstock has some vague inletting at head and is not proud where it meets action, does not appear to be walnut (Indian restock?). 9.6lb, cased in brass cornered leather case, poss original, w wadcutter tool and cleaning rods with accys. Hits a dinner plate at 100 yards with a 58 cal full wadcutter minie bullet 520gr seated over 60gr 4198 and plenty of dacron ... L and R horizontal straddling the bullseye but 6-8" apart .. comfortable to shoot and my guess it would do even better with a short 450-500 grain conical eg the Lee REAL mold. Comes with a new set of reloading dies (3 die set) and shellholder and a few of the minie bullets we tested it with.
