Ok here i go. I am hoping this works. This is obviously an 1886. I am hoping to get some opinions on it. It’s a 45-90 round barrel.IMG_1115.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1135.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1134.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1133.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1132.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1131.jpgImage Enlarger

Looks like a nice gun that has aged some.  It is common for the case coloring to start to fade and get the grey.  The wood looks nice too.

Looks like a very nice ’86, with a lot of condition.  In a couple of the photos, it looks like the wood may have been cleaned and possibly sanded.  In another photo you can clearly see that at one time it had a tang sight.

 When looking at the picture of the upper tang from the side the wood is lower than the metal. T/R

I’d be looking to put out about $5000.00 +/- for an ’86 like that in that condition

I compared this to my 86 which was made a year earlier. The bluing on the hammer, lever. and trigger struck me as too blue on a gun that age (made in 1894). Also look at the buggered hammer screw and the buggered forestock cap screw. I’m a little bit leery. Don

Thanks Henry, appreciate the response. Don the “bluing you described is case color, just very dark purple/blue. Sorry I don’t profess to be a professional photographer. But thanks for the in put.
