Evans Sporting marked rifle
The rifle has a radial block receiver with rounds fed from an Archimedean-screw magazine which formed the spine of the rifle stock and could hold up to 28 rounds. The fluted cartridge carrier made a quarter turn each time the lever was operated, feeding a new cartridge into the breech. The new model Evans rifle used the 11/2” case. This was known as the “.44 New Model” cartridge.
30 inch round barrel, appears to be New Model.
The Evans rifle had the greatest magazine capacity of any rifle mass-produced in the 19th Century with approx. 15,000 manufacturedbetween 1873 and 1879.
Round barrel has speckling with barrel bore in reasonable shape. Some amount (about 40%) of bluing remains on the receiver. No cracks or splintering on stock or forearm.
