Here’s an 1886 Extra Lightweight Takedown in 45-70 I picked up at the Cody Show this year. Between the condition, an excellent bore, and the express sights that letter I couldn’t resist. Its hard to believe how light these rifles actually are, it only weighs in at about 7 pounds.

Still looks good!  I like that it lettered with express sights front and back and of course a guy could still put a tang sight on it if he wanted to.

Thanks guys, I like it too. Brad thought the lettered express sights were a great addition too, but we know how giddy he gets about sights.
