EXTREMELY RARE 1886 LIGHT WEIGHT RIFLE IN SCARCE 40-82
24 inch rapid taper barrel. Correct front sight and special order Lyman side mount receiver sight. Excellent bore. Wood retains most varnish with just a few light mars. Rifle style buttplate. Barrel and mag retain about 85% blue. Receiver retains about 50% blue thinning at the carry point. I can only recall seeing one other 40-82 in light weight rifle. This one is nice throughout.
