M73 Rifle, SN18545

M73 Rifle, SN18545

This rifle was produced in early 1874 as confirmed by the ESA cartouche and the 18545 serial number. The rifle has a very shootable bore but not for competition shooting, strong blue/black 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 very strong blue. Look carefully at the last photo. I believe there are two VERY fine cracks in the stock. Also, there is an N.J. stamping on the underside of the barrel. I assume this means New Jersey National Guard usage.

$1495 + S/H
