It is a good honest gun, but the most unusual feature is the windguage front sight–if that letters, it would be very unusual, & worth several hundred by itself, even if it doesn’t.  But the Lyman 1A is a much later addition.

Since the bore is bad, I’d turn it into a Hornet by lining, which wouldn’t require changes to extractor.

A friend of mine put this up on Gunbroker Auction.

Not Gunbroker, Gunrunner, which charges a 10% buyers fee.

It does letter with that sight.  Of consideration, that Single Shot rifle was the very first one made in the 22 WCF cartridge.  I personally would leave it as is.

Pretty interesting configurations on this one, especially the UN checkered pistol grip. Would this be considered a Semi Deluxe?  

No, it is not a “semi deluxe”.  Instead, it is a Special Sporting Rifle with plain non checkered stocks.
