This carbine was produced in 1898 when the west was still pretty wild, when virtually all business was conducted on the back of a horse or in a wagon. These carbines were highly prized for their compact size and high velocity cartridge, and were a working man’s tool rarely found with high orig finish. PROVENANCE: Woody Frey Collection.

Receiver shows very light sharp edge wear with some light candy striping on both sides. Lever & hammer retain brilliant case colors, fading to silver on outer faces. Buttplate has a chipped toe. Wood is sound with one small stock bruise and overall retains virtually all of its bright, orig factory finish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore.
