M88 RRB Rifle, SN114591

M88 RRB Rifle, SN114591

This rifle was produced in 1891 as confirmed by the SWP/1891 cartouche. The low serial number is indictative of M88 rifles produced in 1891. Evidently, the armory made an effort to use as many of the inventoried receivers to produce M88 rifles. They did this for only one year, 1891. So, many M88 rifles made in 1891 will have serial numbers between 97,000 and 160,000. The rifles made with new receivers range from 508,000 to 533,000. This rifle has a pristine bore, some color case on the block and tang as well as a stock with very few dings. The stock has not been sanded or refinished. The cartouche and the firing proof are clearly seen. The condition of the metal is excellent with some brown showing through the blue.
